Beautiful, historic, haunting. I love Port Arthur and would happily return time and time again.

Well worth the time. Didn't bother with an excursion. Local guides meet the tenders and give a good orientation talk.

No need to do an excursion; this is easily done on your own.You tender to the site, and the site is really all there is. But you can easily spend a day walking through all the buildings and reading the information signs. There are also lovely gardens to walk through. I’ve read reviews saying this port is boring, and all I can say is, yes, it doesn’t have shops (other than a small but nice gift shop),and there’s no “entertainment,” but if this doesn’t interest you, why do you travel? And why did you come to Australia? Here you can learn a lot about the founding of the country. The site is very well-presented and quite fascinating. There is also a cafe where you can get lunch, or you can tender back to the ship for lunch and tender back out after lunch.

Very interesting place Port Arthur. Walking around the old penal ruins is very interesting. Sad to visit the site of the modern day mass shooting. Was easy to spend the day here looking around.
