What to Expect

Discover Tasmania’s infamous convict history and breathtaking nature on this action-packed full-day tour. The day begins with a scenic drive down the Tasman Peninsula. Learn how the early pioneers survived and began new journeys during the picturesque drive down the peninsula. 


At the first stop, you can appreciate spectacular views of the rocky coastline, white-sand beaches, and deep blue waters at Pirates Bay lookout. Then, marvel at Mother Nature's handiwork at the Tessellated Pavements. This geological wonder is a photographer's dream and actually consists of two different formations – pan and loaf.


The next stop takes us to the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. It's the best-preserved convict site in Australia, and among the most significant convict era sites worldwide. Join a guided walking tour to learn about the vivid history, cultural heritage and compelling stories. The walking tour is followed by a harbour cruise and time of your own to explore the interactive exhibits and displays that tell the story of the Port Arthur Historic Site and its people. You'll also have access to more than 30 historic buildings, ruins, restored houses, heritage gardens and walking trails.


On the journey home, we visit Tasman National Park’s hidden secrets at the Remarkable caves, Devils Kitchen, Tasman Arch and Blowhole. If time permits on the journey home we may stop to find some local produce.

  • Pirate's Bay Look Out
