The Port Arthur Region represents an amazing combination of history, heritage, magnificent scenery, fine food and wine, plus a range of fascinating attractions and activities. There’s so much to do, you will need to allow at least two days in the region. As you wander through the preserved ruins, faithfully restored buildings and lovingly recreated gardens you can almost feel the convict history come alive. But this is only the beginning of all the excitement and adventure waiting visitors to the region. The stark reminders of a convict past contrast dramatically with the Historic Site’s tranquil and majestic surroundings. The scenery is breathtaking and includes beautiful bushlands, soaring cliffs, vast caves, wonderful beaches and stunning geological formations. You can explore the area by seaplane or boat charter, discover the Tasman National Park with a guide, go rock climbing, stroll the beach or try sea kayaking or diving- these are just some of the options. Other attractions include a cruise to the “Isle of the Dead», a painstakingly recreated 19th Century timber town and steam railway, museums, a wildlife park and a golf course- all great entertainment to ensure that every taste is catered for. At the end of the day, an authentic evening ghost tour through the Port Arthur Historic Site is an experience not to be missed. So, make the most of your visit by staying overnight in any of the great accommodation choices in the region. You will want to stay more than a day to experience all that Port Arthur has to offer.
