Port Arthur

Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula is Australia’s most intact and evocative convict site. Port Arthur is one of Australia’s great tourism destinations. The Historic Site has over 30 buildings, ruins and restored period homes set in 40 hectares of landscaped grounds. Between 1831 and 1853 12,500 convicts passed through Tasmanias hell on earth.

The Franklin–Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, famous for the 1980s camping to save the Franklin River from damming. This is ancient country. Dense forests line the highway, dark rivers tumble through steep gorges, and deep, wide lakes open up before you. Then without warning, you are entering an entirely different world. Following the road as it spirals for more than 90 bends, you descend into what remains of the worlds richest gold and copper mine. It would have been a difficult life in the days when there was no way out except by sea.
