Created with convict labour, the impressive architecture, delightful gardens and chilling prison facilities survive today for you to explore.

There are guided tours of the area, which are a good way to cover the site in an orderly fashion. As well, there is the Historic Ghost Tour which is held after nightfall when the dark covers the land and the ghosts of the past may just be about.

Port Arthur is located on the Tasman Peninsula and is the best preserved convict penal colony in Australia and the most visited place in Tasmania. More than 20 000 people a year wander through the old sandstone remains. Isolated by a narrow strip of land called Eaglehawk neck and a magnificently rugged coastline, it made an ideal location for a penal colony. Port Arthur was home to 12 000 convicts, both men and boys between 1830 and 1877. Tales of infamy and cruel inhumanity abound.
