Surrounded by shark-infested waters and connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus of land, Port Arthur ranks among Australia's top historical sites and heritage areas.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Wed): get engrossed in the history at Eaglehawk Neck Historic Site, pause for some photo ops at Dog Line, explore and take pictures at Tessellated Pavement, then head outdoors with Tasman Arch, and finally don't miss a visit to Australian Convict Sites. On your second day here, hike along Three Capes Track, then steep yourself in history at Government Cottage, and then appreciate the extensive heritage of Cape Raoul.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Port Arthur sightseeing planning website.
