Nov 1 Port Arthur is 80 Kms south east of Hobart on the Tasman Peninsula and is one of the most significant sites in Australia related to convict importation from the UK … but more of that later. Our caravan site is situated in a beautiful parkland setting with some interesting local wildlife, including the bilby and green lorikeet. Open fires were also allowed. There was a really nice local pub which looked really English (and it served Guiness on tap!).
