Port Arthur - Port Arthur has a 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 because the narrow oceanlet connecting the Tasman to the mainland acted as a natural barrier. It's difficult to imagine how life must have been at Port Arthur in the 1800s, but these tours, especially when contrasted with the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding landscape on the peninsula - however, 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.    The evening ghost tour is fantastic but you'll need to decide if its suitable for your children.  You can make your own way by car to Port Arthur and pay entry on arrival or book a day tour from Hobart.  Visit their website ....            Book your tickets now ...click here
