Port Arthur Historic Site, Tasmania Overview

A World Heritage site, it is Tasmania's most visited attraction.

This convict site is perhaps Australia's best kept site till date. The complex contains over 30 structures spread over a massive 40 hectares of land. Look around the complex, take a harbour cruise, a walking tour, or take a trip to the museum. You can even take a visit to the Isle of the Dead, the cemetery, and the British Empire's first ever juvenile facility exclusively for males - Point Puer Boys Prison. The vast area and and buildings, ruins, and many restored homes can take you 2 days to fully cover, and as such you should plan it in a way that you get to witness as much as you can.
