The World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula is Australia's most intact and evocative convict site, and an essential destination on any tour of Tasmania.

The Historic Site has over 30 buildings, ruins and restored period homes set in 40 hectares of landscaped grounds. Allow plenty of time to fully experience all that Port Arthur has to offer.

Site entry tickets are valid for two consecutive days and include an Introductory Guided Walking Tour, Harbour Cruise, access to Museum, Convict Study Centre and Interpretation Gallery and the site of the Dockyard.

For a small additional fee you can also cruise to the Isle of the Dead and join a guided tour of Port Arthur's island cemetery or take a tour of Point Puer Boys Prison, the first reformatory in the British Empire built exclusively for juvenile male convicts.

Spending a night or two in the area will allow time to fully explore Port Arthur and the fascinating region around it.

Pre-visit bookings, travel advice and information on accommodation are available from the Port Arthur Booking Office at the Brooke Street Pier in Hobart. Tickets are also available on arrival at Port Arthur and via the website.
