Join an action-packed day out showcasing the very best of the Tasman Peninsula. Enjoy a spectacular clifftop walk, discover the captivating history of Port Arthur, and stroll through picturesque Richmond.
What to Expect
After an early start from Hobart, head to the stunning Tasman Peninsula, home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. Enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirate's Bay lookout, see the interesting Tasman Arch and Devil's Kitchen rock formations and join a short but spectacular walk along the Waterfall Bay Coastal Track.
From here head to the Port Arthur Historic Site. Here you have around 4 hours to explore the site. Your entry includes a complimentary cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with one of the expert guides. Feel the sense of isolation experienced by the convicts, and discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian penal system. Walk around the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open-air museum.
Your return to Hobart takes into the beautiful historic township of Richmond village, with time to meander the streets and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted! Last but not least, before re-entering Hobart you will stop for a fabulous view from a local lookout - a picturesque way to return to the city.
