Port Arthur Tours
Explore the Port Arthur region
The Tasman Peninsula features one of the most famous and popular destinations on the Tasmanian tourism circuits – Port Arthur Historic Site – a must visit attraction for every visitor to the region. Did you know about all the other attractions on offer in the area? A great starting place is to check out the local tourism association website found here or for a little further around the region Hobart & Beyond provide great inspiration to get out and explore. Of course, if you’re still tossing up whether to even come to Tasmania at all, Discover Tasmania should do the job of convincing you to come!
When on the road down the peninsula we always recommend a stop at Bangor Wine and Oyster Shed for a spot of wine tasting and selection of oysters. By the way, they also make great coffee! Another great coffee stop on the drive down to the Tasman Peninsula is our friends at Cubed Espresso. They not only serve their own locally roasted coffee, they serve it up with one cracker of a view over Pirates Bay and Cape Hauy.
If you’re looking for somewhere to go for lunch it’s hard to go past Port Arthur Lavender who put together a fantastic menu with a stunning outlook. All this within easy walking distance from our heli base across the road.
If you want to get up close and personal to some of those massive sea cliffs then a boat trip with Tasman Island Cruises is a must during your stay on the Tasman Peninsula. These guys also provide the boat transfer that provides access for walkers about to embark on the Three Capes Track.
For a little more adventure, check out our friends at Tasmanian Ebike Adventures. They put together a unique tour around the Bangor property in the North East of the Tasman Peninsula. Sharing stories of Tasmanian Aboriginal history, early European exploration and a connection with the stunning natural beauty of the land. All this from behind the handlebars of your very own German-engineered Ebike!
