The morning begins with a hotel pick up as we
make our way to the Tasman Peninsular pulling into Pirates bay lookout for a
photo opportunity. We will arrive as the doors open to the historical site, so
you can make your way through the site leaving behind the hustle and bustle.
We have allocated 4 hours which is a perfect amount of time to enjoy the award-winning
site at your own pace. Included in your entrance fee is
a 25-minute Harbour Cruise out to the Isle of the dead cemetery passing
by the boy’s prison and a 45 min guided tour around the Port Arthur site
where your guide will recount numerous stories and explain how the prison
operated all those years ago.
