Now how many people can say that they enjoyed their time in jail?! We had a great day at the Port Arthur Historical Site. Arrive early and plan to stay for the ghost tour in the evening. We purchased the gold pass which included all the little tours, audio guide and meals and felt in the long run that it was a good deal. (The snacks we had were delicious and the evening meal at Felons was good, but we were late for lunch and many of the choices were already gone.) We did the introductory tour and then continued on with our map and audio guide, which provided some good information. The buildings are well maintained and the tour of the Isle of the Dead was interesting. Whether or not you believe, the ghost tour was good entertainment. I suggest staying in the area so that you don't have to worry about driving far in the dark after the day's visit.
