Travelling with my parents in law for their first trip to Tassie, we planned to visit this area, because they were not keen on going to the Port Arthur Historic site. It was a lovely day and Mother Nature was at her spectacular best. There...More

Found the Officers Quarters Museum very informative and certainly provides an insight into the lives and history of the cottage and it occupants over the years. We are fortunate the locals rescued this decaying landmark and saved it from total ruin and destruction. It also...More

Eaglehawk Neck has an interesting colonial convict history which can make you appreciate the area even more. The natural beauty of this area is breathtaking in places. These two factors alone make a visit to the area a must do when in the area.

Visited the old cabin and surrounds at the Eaglehawk site, including the Dog Line. Fantastic history of how the convicts were kept from escaping Port Arthur.

Stop take a stroll and absorb this natural beauty. I am a foodie and can say the food truck experience at these 'drive to' sites in Tasmania are part of the experience. The blowhole view is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time.

Stopped by on my way down to port Arthur. It was worth a stop, not worth a special trip just hopped out of the car to read the sign.

The Blow Hole and Tasmanian Arch were on the way to Port Arthur and we did the tourist stop to have a look and stretch our legs. It's remarkable how the sea has carved it way into the rocks to form these attractions. I'm glad...More
