See the highest sea cliffs in Australia and sweeping views from Pirates Bay Lookout. Continue to the rock formations known as Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen, then take a short guided walk on the cliff top trail to Waterfall Bay, designated one of the 'Great Short Walks' of Tasmania.
Next up, have four hours to explore the Port Arthur Historic Site on your own. Your entrance ticket to the World Heritage Site includes a guided walking tour with one of the expert staff guides and a complimentary Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead. Walk among buildings of the main prison, check out the solitary confinement cells and more in this open-air museum. You'll gain insights into the grim history of the early Australian penal system, and learn about the convicts that passed their time in this notorious prison.
Return to Hobart via the historic township of Richmond Village. Stop there to stroll around the streets of the picturesque village and walk across Australia’s oldest sandstone bridge, built by convict labor with stone quarried at Butchers Hill.
Near Hobart, stop at a local lookout for a fabulous view of the city and Mt Wellington before returning to your starting point where your tour ends.
