This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Port Arthur Historic Site, Arthur Highway, Port Arthur, Tasmania 7182 Australia

Join us for a fun and action-packed day out on the Tasman Peninsula. Explore, discover and learn with our guides as we enjoy a variety of activities, walks, sightseeing, history, chocolate tasting and much more!

Today is action packed and fast paced, so we make an early start from Hobart and drive directly to the stunning Tasman Peninsula. This area has amazing history, fascinating stories and spectacular scenery. It is also home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. We enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirates Bay Lookout which provides a great vantage here of the surrounding area.

Passing through Eaglehawk Neck and “The Dogline” our Tour Guides will share with you some truly amazing history and stories of the area.

Then we begin one of Tasmania’s “Great Short Walks”. We follow a spectacular track, of around 2 km’s along the Waterfall Bay cliff top. The walk takes around 45-60 minutes, is undulating, but categorised as an easy walk. The track concludes at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.

Continuing our journey, we arrive at the Port Arthur Historic Site. As we enter the Port Arthur Historic Site, there is a wealth of information and history to take in and you will have ample time to explore and discover the nooks and crannies with around 4 hours on site. Your entry includes a complimentary Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with one of the Site’s expert guides. Discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian Penal system and get a sense of the isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”. With around 4 hours here, you have ample time to walk amongst the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum.

On our return to Hobart, we make a stop at Federation Chocolate Factory, a small family run boutique chocolate stop, with a variety of chocolate flavours to sample. Further along we arrive in the late afternoon into historic Richmond Village. Meander the streets, stop for a coffee, visit the Lolly Shop and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted!

Finally, before we re-enter Hobart we stop for a fabulous view across Hobart from a local lookout. A picturesque way to return to the city.

We drop you back to your Hobart City accommodation around 6.00pm.

    Not the tour if you want to enjoy a day at Port Arthur. Pick up in Hobart in a very old tired mini bus with not so clean floor and seats. Too many things in one day to really enjoy the day. A short stop for coffee and rest rooms on the way. A Stop at the Cliff Top saw lovely views but we did not expect the almost 1 hour bush walk to Waterfall Bay. Cold and windy so we felt this part could have been averted. Finally got to the other side to meet the tour guide to find more bush walking to see "something" that was closed so around to Tasman Arch where the mini bus was parked. Next was on the Un Zoo which we had paid for only to find we were left for an hour to see one little old Tassie Devil be fed. Then a quick bird show which lasted about 10 mins because the birds didn't come. After eventually being picked up, off the the Lavender Farm to pick up the sole person there. They informed the driver 15 minutes would have been plenty of time. Eventually we finally arrived at Port Arthur just in time for the 12.30 walking tour, . As it ended we were to head over to the boat cruise for 1.20. After it finished we had less than 1 hour to look around Port Arthur. The entire day while somewhat organised was very time poor for Port Arthur. Too much squashed into the morning and 5 hours before we arrived. Promptly at 3pm we were herded back on to the bus and headed for Richmond which was another waste of time arriving just after 4pm for a 40 minute stop but to be told everything closes at 4pm. The lolly shop was about all that was open. Last but not least another divert to a lookout on the southern side of the Derwent River, just a carpark really but a nice view all the same. Eventually back to Hobart in peak hour traffic just before 6pm. There was a lot to do in 1 day in my opinion a lot of wasted time which could have been much better spent at Port Arthur. For tourists there is no time built in to eat, everything was on the run, I don't recommend this tour if you want to see and enjoy all of Port Arthur and what it has to offer.

    The tour operators and our guide were excellent. Unfortunately the booking through Viator was dreadful. Despite having a booking reference , electronic ticket, it was never issued to the tour operator, so they had no record of us in the system and failed to pick us up. After 20 mins we rang the tour operator who told us the above. But the tour operator went above and beyond and returned to collect us- outstanding service.

    A great day from start to finish! Well-thought-out itinerary with no stop too long or too short, and a bonus opportunity to see Tasmanian devils! This tour was the highlight of our trip to Tassie. Special thanks to our guide Jeremy who is brilliant at what he does.

    This was a very informative tour. David was full of interesting information on recent and historic events in Tasmania. He was quite funny too. We went for a lovely bush walk on a smooth gravel track and saw wonderful rugged cliff views. It was good to have a bit if convict information before we got to Port Arthur too. It was a full day and we thoroughly enjoyed it

    We had a great day! An early start meant that we saw so much. We did the 45 min walk and saw spectacular cliff to sights including the devils kitchen ad blow hole. Our guide was David and he was full of interesting information and funny stories. He had a vast knowledge of local and historic knowledge. He was very in tune with our comfort too. Always asking how the sure temp was etc. We were very happy with three tour and would consider going another one with them.
