Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur Historic Site

The Tasman Peninsula is located in southeast Tasmania just over an hour’s drive from the capital Hobart. The Tasman Peninsula is easily accessible by the Arthur Highway, a winding 70 kilometre drive through beautiful countryside and bushland. The most popular attraction on the Tasman Peninsula is the Port Arthur Historic Site, which is often on the bucket list for travellers to Tasmania. Whether visiting Port Arthur or not, exploring the Tasman Peninsula is a must-do, as the natural beauty of this region will really leave an impression on you.

Osborne Helitours: Port Arthur and the Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania, AustraliaThe Tasman Peninsula is a piece of land in the southeast of Tasmania that is surrounded by beautiful bays and ocean. The Peninsula has Storm Bay in the west and south, the Tasman Sea out to the east and Norfolk Bay and Frederick Henry Bay to the north and northwest.

The Peninsula is connected by a small isthmus named Eaglehawk Neck. This isthmus made the Tasman Peninsula a perfect location to host Port Arthur, the penal settlement that housed Australia’s first convicts. In reality, Tasman Peninsula was the perfect natural prison.

In modern times, the Peninsula has become a favourite with Tasmanian bushwalkers, campers and day-trippers due to its spectacular natural beauty and views that will take your breath away. There is also plenty for history buffs, adventurers, families and animal lovers. The Tasman Peninsula is a playground just outside Hobart that everyone will love.

It has to be argued that the highlight of the Tasman Peninsula is the extraordinary rugged coastline. Most visitors to Tasmania would agree that the state has an oversupply of spectacular coastline, but it could be argued that the Tasman Peninsula has some of the best.
