If Prison Break was set in mid-19th century Australia, Tasmania’s Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula would surely be the location. Separated from Tasmania by a narrow neck of land surrounded by shark-infested waters, Port Arthur was sold as the ‘inescapable prison’. But unlike today’s camera surveillance, guards and half-starved hounds guarded the only way out.
The tour to Port Arthur is a unique experience that will give you a feel of the past convict era and of the early settlement heritage of Australians. Set amongst the English Oaks and gardens, Port Arthur is a visually historic place to visit. Your tour includes expert commentary from our experienced coach captains, harbour cruise, admission to Port Arthur and a lot more.
