Tassie Convict Stopover

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 316

Tasmania offers a world of difference from the rest of Australia. Explore the ruins of the infamous Port Arthur penal settlements, learning the history of Australia’s early convicts.


Discovered in 1642, Tasmania’s isolation made it an ideal penal colony for many of the worst offenders from Britain, Ireland and New South Wales. Port Arthur was a major convict settlement used from the 1833 until 1877. Today, it is the best preserved site of its kind in Australia.

This 3 day tour from Hobart takes you to see many of the settlement’s key sites, including the Commandant’s House, Devil’s Kitchen and for a cruise on Carnarvon Bay around the ‘Isle of the Dead’.

    The breeze along Hobart's waterfront carries a thousand captivating stories of those that were here before us - a cast of remarkable characters, each with an intriguing story to tell. In this place, the Mouheneenner people fished and forged dreams in the Derwent shallows; the first Europeans set foot ashore Van Diemen's Land and an industry was borne amid the bustle of Hunter Island. Today, this precinct is home to MACq 01 where the stories of these colourful characters are shared in a setting of informal luxury. This is a storytelling hotel.
