Foodies love the Peninsula and it’s fantastic range of places to eat, drink and indulge surrounded by stunning scenery. With two spectacular distilleries, a few top quality wine makers, food festivals, farmers markets and lovely restaurants, cafes, food trucks and a good number of lovely local fruit and veg producers, there is ample opportunity to taste the joys of eating on the Peninsula.
The beautifully presented grounds are a stark contrast to the harsh conditions endured by the convicts. You can walk through the buildings on your own with an information book in hand or there are free guided tours. The entry fee also includes a short ferry ride around the harbour. The ferry takes you past the dockyard, the Point Puer Boys’ Prison and the Isle of the Dead cemetery. There are a range of other tours available at extra cost including a ghost tour and tours of the boys’ prison and the cemetery. The Port Arthur historic site lies at the very tip of the Tasman Peninsula and is UNESCO World Heritage listed. This historic penal colony was placed in this idyllic setting with a green mountain backdrop because of the harbour (for ease of unloading prisoners transported from England) and because it was situated on a peninsula it was easier to protect.
