Step back in time as you explore Port Arthur, the most intact and evocative historic prison in Australia, with ruined and restored buildings set amongst gardens and rolling hills. Walk through the magnificent Government Gardens and see objects buried for over a century, now rediscovered by archeologists. Next, visit the eerie Separate Prison, where prisoners were locked in single cells for 23 hours each day. You can also talk with the heritage experts involved in bringing the ruined building back to life. After the tour, there’s free time to explore further at your own pace.
