5 Attractions To Visit On The Tasman Peninsula [TASMANIA]

The TASMAN PENINSULA is located in Tasmania’s south east and definitely an area to put on your itinerary when visiting the Apple Isle!

With so much history to uncover and a spectacular coastline to explore, you’ll need a few days to take it all in!

PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE 

What an amazing place to visit – a must do!

The history is so fascinating and you get a real feel for what life was like for the convicts.

For $95 (family of 4) we had a full day of exploring – it is actually a two day consecutive pass.

A 25 minute harbour cruise, 40 minute guided walking tour and access to over 30 historic buildings was included in the price.  We thought this was great value and really needed the full day!

You can do separate tours out to the two islands – The Isle of the Dead Cemetery and Point Puer Boys’ Prison.

Our kids (5 & 9) really enjoyed it and were engaged and asked LOTS of questions throughout the whole day!

Highly recommend a visit to Port Arthur!

TESSELLATED PAVEMENT

The Tessellated Pavement is a fascinating natural rock formation best viewed at low tide.  

You can read all about how the pavement is formed on the way down at one of the many viewing points.

REMARKABLE CAVE

Is just that – REMARKABLE!  We hopped over the side, with the many others, to explore the cave and wandered through to the beach!  ***Only do this at low tide and when the sea is calm!!
