The popular 11-hour Port Arthur Mega Day tour showcases fascinating Tasmanian history, the natural attractions of the Tasman Peninsula, and Tasmania's unique wilderness.

Spend the morning strolling around Richmond Colonial Village, Australia's most historic town. Admire its beautiful Georgian buildings and see the oldest bridge in Australia.

At the Tasman Peninsula, take in sweeping ocean views and magnificent coastlines from Pirates Bay Lookout before heading to pristine Eaglehawk Neck. Breathe the salt air as you take a walk on beautiful Egg Beach. Learn about notorious convict, Dogline as you stand where he stood.

Then explore Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen, stunning natural attractions rich in native flora and fauna before arriving at the famous Port Arthur Historic Site. At Port Arthur, visit over 30 historic buildings, take a harbour cruise and walking tour to enhance the experience, and check out the popular museum and theatre.

Before departing for Hobart, we visit the stunning Remarkable Cave and see panoramic views from Maingon Bay Lookout. The lookout is one of the best places to see whales cavorting in the ocean!

Enjoy our brand new convict DVD storyteller with carefully crafted stories, old pictures, and moving images as you travel between destinations. Hear the stories of Tasmanian convicts and learn how they truly lived. On the way home, sit back and enjoy our Tasmanian Devil documentary.
