Tour Details

Explore the intriguing convict past of Port Arthur and enjoy the colorful outdoor shopping at Salamanca Market on this unique Hobart tour. You'll have a guided tour of Port Arthur as well as time to explore its historic ruins on your own during this fascinating day trip.

Start by strolling the lively outdoor Salamanca Market for colorful, locally-made goods. Delight in a shopping experience at Hobart's popular outdoor marketplace. Wander through numerous stalls of arts, crafts, fresh local produce, and tantalising gourmet foods. Then join your friendly, well-informed guide as he explains the dramatic history of Port Arthur and its convict history.

Head out across the Tasman Bridge and onto the Tasman Highway. Passing through suburbs and towns bordering on picturesque bays and inlets, you will head onto the Forestier Peninsula, home to pristine Pirates Bay and Eaglehawk Neck. Your first stop will be at the Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen, where you will wonder at the magnitude of this coastal geological feature with superb views of the rugged coastline.

Play “The Lottery of Life” at the interpretation center at Port Arthur, and follow the life of a convict. Take a guided walking tour of the site, with access to over 30 restored buildings and ruins. See the penitentiary (once a granary and flour mill), a separate prison, the Commandant's house, the church, and more. Your experience includes a harbor cruise around the Isle of the Dead on Carnarvon Bay, the burial place for those who died while in Port Arthur.

Sitting tranquilly amongst English oaks and gardens, Port Arthur is a harsh contrast to the beauty of the Tasman Peninsula. This Port Arthur historic tour will open your eyes to Australia's convict past and the daily lives of the early European settlers in Tasmania.
