Port Arthur

Prison Heritage

Port Arthur, Tasmania

Port Arthur is home to one of the most famous prisons in Australia and a significant Australian heritage area. It served as a penal colony in the 1800s where more than 2,000 prisoners were kept. A terrific bay ride, museum, and collection of cafes and sights make this a great place to visit when in Tasmania.
