So thankful we went to Port Arthur so much history , was very interesting place to see . Even though there is still a lot os sadness linked to this place it does honour to those who once graced this place with there presence as first immigrants and those who came to see history and lost their lives , very moving and worth seeing.

A day visit isn't nearly enough to truly appreciate the history of this unique and historic piece of Australian Pioneering History. The guides and venue staff are genuine and passionate. The facility is well maintained and currently being professionally restored. Every building is perfectly restored and preserved. The documented history is well transposed and fascinating. Well worth the entrance fee and good value for a great day out. Congrats to all involved.

We visited on a crisp, clear, winter Sunday lunchtime, and were lucky enough to dodge the queue everyone else has mentioned, but by the time we left, this was quite long, and people were having to wait a while for service, so bear that in mind when planning a visit. We managed to get a wheelchair in with no problems when we arrived, but struggled to push past the crowds as we were leaving.
The food is what you'd expect at a tourist destination, but I still thought there was a pretty good selection of hot food, sandwiches, cakes, drinks, etc. The only thing left on our plates when we left was Dad's roast pork (this was quite overcooked, dry and tasteless) and some of the icing from the Hummingbird cake (this was just a bit too thick and sweet, but the cake itself was lovely). We all really like the chips, these were crisp and well seasoned.
I think the price was the best thing, very reasonable compared to other similar destinations that often charge you a fortune to eat pretty awful food.
All in all, not too bad, nothing amazing to comment on, but nothing bad to report either.

We had been told that everything in this café was unhealthy and fried, but that is not true. There were sandwiches, fruit, snacks, cakes and we loved the hot fresh soup with crusty bread roll. Yum!
