Port Arthur

Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks · Hiking Trails
Surrounded by shark-infested waters and connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus of land, Port Arthur ranks among Australia's top historical sites and heritage areas. The small town and former penal colony draws over quarter million visitors each year. The World Heritage-listed open-air museum with more than 30 buildings remains a major Port Arthur tourist attraction. The haunting stories of the former convicts and guards of the once "inescapable prison" are the inspiration behind popular ghost tours. Though most Post Arthur holidays are about the remains of the infamous convict settlement, many travelers are also attracted by the melancholic atmosphere of the bush-covered Isle of the Dead, the colony's cemetery. When using our Australia trip builder tool to make an itinerary online, Port Arthur holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
