My last visit was over 20 years ago and I was very impressed by the visitor centre and our tour guide Bridie was excellent. Well worth a visit to learn about the history and have a walk around the fabulous buildings.

Responded Nov 17, 2020
Thank you for visiting Port Arthur and taking the time to leave a review. The harbour cruise is a highlight for many, as well as the Isle of the Dead tour, however due to the sensitivity of the site, our Point Puer tours (the former boys prison) are currently not operating. Kind regards the Port Arthur team
