Kryssning till Port Arthur, Tasmania

Port Arthur, first established in 1830, is a historic village in the Tasman Peninsula in southern Tasmania. The site was a penal colony for almost 50 years and now serves as a great jumping-off point for an adventure beyond the storied village, where open landscapes with dramatic seaside rock formations and cliffs await. You can discover Port Arthur with walking tours, a harbor cruise or by exploring the site by yourself. The village, now an open-air museum, holds the ruins of the penal settlement, including a penitentiary and a church.
