If planning to spend one day there, the entry site pass provides you with a guided tour a must, free access to all on mainland and a guided boat tour of around the islands e.g. Isle of the dead. Could easily spend two days there one was all we had time for....a unique experience. The drive to Port Arthur was also full of breathtaking views if you take the few minutes to drive off the main roads for some truly breathtaking views.
Well worth the visit. Definitely need more than one day to see it all.
A very interesting two days, Port Arthur is a fascinating place! We also took a JetBoat tour which was also very entertaining...
Had the most amazing time here,there is definitely a "feeling' ,we were really moved by all the different levels of history here not to mention the natural beauty.
Very interesting day. The guide for the tour was extremely good, with a mix of history and a little bit humour. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, hard to imagine the severe hardship of convicts. Nice small cafe to sit and relax a while.
Very happy with the whole day. Really enjoyed the boat building and blacksmith area with sound effects. Loved the cruise but wished we had booked the the Isle of the Dead. The talk was informative and helped us navigate our way around. We will return again because of course we did not leave enough time.
Walking tour very informative, had a great guide.
Cruise was ok but not necessary if you are short of time
The Site itself is a must do experience and the initial walk through with the guide puts everything in place. The ferry ride takes about 20 minutes but we decided to take the optional tour of the Isle of the Dead. The tour guide was most informative and some of the stories he told were enough to put a chill up your spine. Also they estimate that 1100 to 1200 people are buried on the island but they are not quite sure where they are all buried so it is most likely the path you take walks over some of the bodies that are buried there. I was waiting for a hand to come out of the ground and grab an ankle. It will take a couple of days to see all the out buildings, worth the effort. advertisements is under
We enjoyed our visit to Port Arthur Historic Site, which included a guided short walk and a short cruise. You could see most of what's on offer in one full day or break it up over two days as we did. The Bronze ticket price (which is the cheapest available and what we bought through Viator) is available as a two day pass only. We had a lovely time there.
