  • Port Arthur: Day Tour from Hobart

    1. Port Arthur: Day Tour from Hobart

    Head to the stunning Tasman Peninsula, home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs, on this full-day excursion. Enjoy panoramic views from Pirate's Bay lookout, see the Tasman Arch and Devil's Kitchen rock formations, and take a spectacular walk along the Waterfall Bay coastal track. Visit the Port Arthur Historic Site, and enjoy a complimentary cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with an expert guide. Walk around the main penitentiary and see the solitary confinement cells and more in this World Heritage open-air museum. On the return to Hobart visit lovely Richmond village, taking time to walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use.

    This four was 10/10! It had the perfect amount of guidance vs freedom. Lots of outdoor activity so you were taking in the marvellous views for the entire day. The guide was incredible - didn’t constantly speak so you didn’t have a headache at the end of the day. Just shared stories and information at the perfect time, in the perfect amount. Would 100% recommend this tour.

    Discover the wonders of the Tasmanian gin scene on this full-day tasting adventure. With some of the purest air and water on Earth, Tasmania’s diverse and interesting plant life has allowed for some truly unique flavors to flourish, creating world-class gins. During the experience, visit three carefully selected gin distilleries known for their outstanding handcrafted gin.

    Was a jam-packed day with lots of variety! The Tasman National Park walk and views were lovely. The Lavender Farm is quite small, so only had 30 minutes there. The tour included entry into the Port Arthur Historic Site and a boat ride. My guide Andrew, and the other travellers in my tour group made the experience even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend for a great day out!
