The first stop of the day will be at Port Arthur where you'll learn about its long history of hardship and punishment. Today, it's one of Australia's most important heritage destinations where the story of Australia's colonial history is written in brick and stone. You'll get the chance to read and learn about the people who passed through this place, walk where their stories unfolded and learn about Port Arthur's evolution from a feared convict settled to a World Heritage-listed Historic Site.
Then, it's time to move onto the Tessellated Pavement which is really something quite unique. It's the strand that connects the Tasman Peninsula to the rest of Tasmania and it's covered in a pattern of regular rectangular saltwater pools - they may look manmade but they're actually a rare type of natural erosion. It is a phenomenon that you can only see in a few places around the world. It's definitely worth seeing and a fascinating part of history!
