It is one of Australia’s most important cultural heritage sites – a place where powerful personal stories of convicts, soldiers, free settlers and their families reveal themselves. The World Heritage-listed site offered no escape, making it the perfect destination for hardened, repeat offenders. Feel the touch of a convict’s plight on a late evening ghost tour or in the harsh daylight of Port Arthur’s gorgeous surrounds – discover it your way. Take the boat cruise, wait until dusk or even stay in the area overnight and spend a couple of days learning about those who had no chance of escape from this peninsula.
