Stay in town to explore Hobart's colourful streets or take a side trip to Port Arthur, the remains of Tasmania's famous convict settlement. The Port Arthur Historic Site encompasses over thirty buildings, ruins and restored period furnished homes set in 40 hectares of landscaped grounds. The Port Arthur penal settlement began life as a small timber station in 1830. Originally designed as a replacement for the recently closed timber camp at Birches Bay, Port Arthur quickly grew in importance within the penal system of the colonies.
