Introducing Tasman Peninsula & Port Arthur
The Arthur Hwy runs 100km from Hobart through Sorell to the Port Arthur Historic Site, the biggest of Tassie’s big-ticket tourist lures. But the convict ruins are only part of the Tasman Peninsula story – also here are astonishing 300m-high sea cliffs, empty surf beaches, sandy bays and stunning bushwalks through thickly wooded forests and isolated coastlines. Much of the area constitutes the Tasman National Park.
