Port Arthur Tours from Hobart
A visit to the former convict settlement of Port Arthur offers harrowing insight into Australia’s convict history. The vast complex is now both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Tasmania’s most visited tourist attraction. Here are your options for Port Arthur tours from Hobart. 

Full-Day Tours 
The easiest way to visit the Port Arthur historic site is on a full-day group tour, traveling by bus or coach from Hobart. Most tours include a walking tour of the sprawling open-air museum, taking in highlights of the Tasman National Park along the way. Expect photo stops at sites like Tasman Arch, Eaglehawk Neck, Pirates Bay, and Devils Kitchen.

Multi-Day Tours
With time to spare, a multi-day tour means you can explore more of Tasmania’s attractions, with an expert tour guide on hand to make sure you don't miss anything. You can combine a Hobart sightseeing tour with a day trip to Port Arthur; journey from Hobart to Launceston with stops at Port Arthur, Freycinet National Park, and Cradle Mountain; or set out on an epic 7-day island adventure. Most tours include accommodation, as well as selected meals, entrance fees, and activities.
