Appreciate the stunning views a short but spectacular walk along one of Tasmania’s "Great Short Walks", the Waterfall Bay Coastal Track.

From here, head to the Port Arthur Historic Site, where you will have around 4 hours to explore the site. Your entry includes a complimentary harbour cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with one of the Site’s expert guides. Feel the sense of isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”, discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian penal system. Walk amongst the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum.

Your return to Hobart takes into the beautiful historic township of Richmond Village, with time to meander the streets and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted! Last but not least, before entering Hobart, stop for a fabulous view of Hobart from a local lookout - a picturesque way to return to the city.
