The historic site of Port Arthur is Australia’s best preserved convict site and a UNESCO World Heritage site. With this tour, start with a walking tour, then enjoy plenty of time to explore the vast site at your own pace, take a cruise across the harbor, and visit the Penitentiary. Along the way, take in highlights of the Tasman Peninsula including Richmond Village, Remarkable Cave, and the Tasman Arch.

Had a great day, everything was nicely paced, and got to visit Richmond early, so had some great photograph opportunities. Mark the tour guide, was great and very funny, kept us laughing the entire way through. Definitely worth the money. Would recommend this tour.

We were picked up at a different hotel than the one we were staying in for some strange reason. When we got on the bus the tour guide Mark started with this incessant conversation that rarely stopped and got less informative, more rude and at times definitely racist. We were
