Historic Port Arthur Day Trip from Hobart Including Cliff-Top Walk to Waterfall Bay
From US$97.00
Overview
Discover the sights of the Tasman Peninsula on this full-day tour from Hobart. The tour includes stops at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site, an infamous 19th-century prison, as well as Richmond Village where you’ll be able to cross Australia’s oldest sandstone bridge. Plus, check out rock formations, the Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen, along the peninsula’s coastline.
What to Expect
After being picked up at your Hobart hotel (or you can meet at the Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre), board an air-conditioned coach and head to the Tasman Peninsula. View Australia's highest sea cliffs as you drive toward the famous rock formations—Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen. There, enjoy a short, easy walk along the cliff-top trail to Waterfall Bay.

Following that, explore the UNESCO-listed Port Arthur Historic Site where you can join a guided walking tour, as well as board a harbor cruise; both the tour and cruise are included with your entrance ticket. Wander around the former prison and look inside its solitary confinement cells, while learning about the history of the country's early penal system and the convicts who inhabited this 19th-century prison.

Then, return to Hobart, stopping at Richmond Village on the way back. There, stroll the streets and walk across Australia’s oldest sandstone bridge. At the end of the tour, get dropped off at your hotel.

Wonderful tour and tour guide

Connor provided a lively dialogue about the history surrounding our tour, the convicts, Tasmanian Devils and spots along the drive. The cliff walk was spectacular. The small size of the group made the tour very enjoyable.

Brilliant! Well worth the money! Recommended!

We were a group of 6 older females- we had Nick as our driver, he was knowledgeable, funny and I heard other passengers asking him what other tours could they go on if he was leading them? He knew his stuff. The scenery was amazing!...More

Enjoyed our Day!

We purchased the option to visit the Unzoo; unfortunately we felt that we should have spent that time at Port Arthur instead. However, the Birds of the Bush show was very well presented. The stop at Richmond was long enough for us to walk around...More

Good and informative

Lots of history here. The prison itself is mostly destroyed but you get to see some parts of the prison. Spooky though. Sad history here. We had a nice day trip. The restaurant here is good. You have to explore everything on your own though...More
