The Coal Mines Historic Site Walk in Port Arthur is a must do for anyone interested in discovering history dating back to the 1800’s. The coal mines site initially provided a local supply of coal to the Port Arthur colony, accommodating up to 600 convicts in its busiest time, nowadays however it is nothing more than a site of ruins. Taking approximately two hours to complete, the walk travels through bushland in a circuit motion, starting and ending at grounds of the main settlement area.

Along the walk you’ll come across underground cells, building ruins and the main shaft and air shaft. Once home to a chapel, bakehouse, store and much more, the history you’ll encounter along the walk is something unlike you’ll have ever experienced. This walk couldn’t come more highly recommended, for history lovers or not, this is an enjoyable trek for all personalities. Ensure you are wearing comfortable and sturdy shoes for safety reasons. We also recommended packing some water and snacks to avoid dehydration!
