Port Arthur, Richmond and Tasman Peninsula Day Trip from Hobart
Continue to the Tasman Peninsula, stopping to enjoy the view from Pirates Bay Lookout. A stop is also made in Doo Town, a quaint seaside village famous for its quirky house names. From here, gaze out over Tasman Arch, one of the many unusual rock formations found in the Tasman National Park, and see what’s cooking at Devil's Kitchen. This is some of Australia's most stunning coastal scenery. Take a walk to Waterfall Bay to enjoy spectacular views from the clifftops.
The highlight of the day is the opportunity to check out Tasmania’s convict heritage at Port Arthur. There’s no rush with plenty of time to see the sights on a guided walking tour and harbour cruise. Hear about the harsh conditions that the earliest European residents of Tasmania experienced after being sent across the world.
Before returning to Hobart, a stop is at Federation Chocolate Factory to taste delicious hand-made chocolates – a very sweet end to a great day of exploring some of Tasmania most beautiful rugged scenery and fascinating convict history.

Bus driver Rob helped to make the day as enjoyable as it was. Stopped at a few places along the way such as Richmond which was scenic and needed to have the camera ready. Great bakery there too. Spent four hours at Port Arthur, and needed every minute to try and see or read as much as you could. The ferry ride which was included in the package was enjoyable and allowed some time to sit before heading back on land to visit more buildings. Stopping at a chocolate place on the way back to Hobart was a treat. The bus was a small 12 seater, but with regular stops, it didn't feel too cramped. Great group of people from many different places on the bus which made the trip more enjoyable and fun.
A really enjoyable day tour. Tour guide was very informative and friendly. My only complaint was not enough time spent exploring Richmond. I enjoyed Port Arthur and the Tasman Peninsula.
This tour was amazing!
I was here in November and though I am an older lady, I ended up in a group with all youth. The guide and driver, a young man named Chris, was wonderful. I don't speak English very well and had trouble keeping up. He was very attentive to me, repeating interesting information, making sure I didn't go the wrong way, and making sure I was comfortable. He made an otherwise difficult trip very fun.
We had a wonderful day visiting Port Arthur . Weather was perfect . Loved Richmond . Will visit again.
