Places to Visit

Isle of the Dead
The island, Isle of the Dead was originally called Opossum Island after the ship, the Opossum, which sheltered here in 1827. Isle of the Dead is so named because it became the cemetery for Port Arthur in 183. It was divided into two sections one for free settlers and the other for convicts. Over the years 1769 convicts and 180 free settlers (mostly military personnel) were buried on the island.

Port Arthur
Although mainly known as a convict settlement, Port Arthur started out as a timber station in 1830. In the 1833 it became a penal colony. The penal colony is famous world wide for its harsh conditions and very black history, but it is also an amazingly beautiful landscape. Find Port Arthur accommodation

Remarkable Cave
Remarkable Cave is situated about 6 km from Port Arthur historical site. It is a spectacular journey to the cave with breath taking coastal views from Safety Cove across Port Arthur to Budge Head, Resolution Point, Yankee Rock, Cape Pillar and Tasman Island. Remarkable Cave is actually a huge tub rather than a cave created by the collapse of the walls of the cliffs.
