Port Arthur travelogue picture
Port Arthur is amazing. It has old tumbled down building (churches, houses and gaols), and museums in houses to show how it would have looked when it was in operation. There is a boat ride to the Isle of the Dead where all the convicts, soldiers and others are buried.

Favourite spots:
The large tumbled-down penitentiary and it's reflection on the water of the bay.

What's really great:
The whole place, the history is amazing and it is very peaceful.

Sights:
The old church and the penitentiary - falling down, no roof and amazing history.

Accommodations:
It is only a short drive to Hobart. We stayed there with family.
