Full description
Discover Tasmania’s convict past on a small-group day trip from Hobart to the Tasman Peninsula and the much-maligned Port Arthur Historic Site. Be picked up from your centrally-located Hobart accommodation. Your guide will offer live commentary along the way. 

The next stop is the Pirates Bay lookout. Discover how difficult it would have been to escape Port Arthur and see breathtaking scenery. Learn about life as a convict and then explore Port Arthur Historic Site where you will be able to experience a harbor cruise and an introductory guided tour. You have time to wander the grounds and soak up the compelling tales of the past. 

Then, explore nature and check out unusual geological formations found in the Tasman National Park. A place of rugged beauty with some of the most stunning coastal scenery found anywhere in Australia. Your day ends with drop off back to your hotel.

Fantastic Tour

We had Jarrod as our tour guide and there were only 3 couples on the tour bus that day (chose a small group tour company) and we had a lovely trip from Hobart to Port Arthur and back with stops along the way learning about the local area attractions on the way to Port Arthur. Would highly recommend anyone considering doing a tour to Port Arthur to use Get Your Guide.
