One of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, the Port Arthur Historic Site, is located in Southern Tasmania. A former convict settlement originally of the British Empire in the 18th and 19th Centuries, Port Arthur is now officially Tasmania’s top tourist attraction. Learn of the haunting tales of locals gone missing and convicts put to labour in the Coal Mines, and take a lantern-lit Ghost Tour around the chilling corners of this open-air museum.
With Hobart just a short drive from the Airport, a day trip to the city is a great choice for those landing here. Listed as one of the top cities to visit, Hobart is a historic city whose streets and corners have preserved its long-standing history with pride.
Visit the Museum of Old and New Art, the largest private museum in Australia, to enjoy the eccentric collection of David Walsh. Its halls of antiques and contemporary art are described by Walsh as a “subversive adult Disneyland”. Hobart also boasts a host of other notable museums, such as the Tasmanian Transport Museum and the Maritime Museum of Tasmania.
Tasmania is also home to the historic Richmond Village, a quiet old-age town nestled in the Coal River Valley and blooming with rustic charm. Take a trip here for its sophisticated wines and fine dining at its many al fresco restaurants and vineyards, or walk down its alleys to uncover shops selling authentic Tasmanian curiosities. Its pastoral Georgian architecture gives both history buffs and the urban traveller many reasons to linger in this romantic village.
