Port Arthur Day Tours from Hobart

These day tours of Port Arthur from Hobart will let you witness the long and tumultuous history that has made it a must-see destination for those visiting Tasmania today. Chosen in 1830 as a site for a penal colony to house Britain's worst offenders, it was considered an excellent location due to the narrow oceanlet connecting the Tasman to the mainland which acted as a natural barrier. These tours will help cut through the shroud of mystery and history and show that Port Arthur is much more than a former convict station.

With many fine buildings dedicated to shipping, mining and milling, witness a town that is frozen in time as interpretive and interactive presentations bring to reality the harrowing life of convicts over 200 years ago.
