History & Convict Heritage


Things to do and see in a diverse yet compact region


The Port Arthur and Coal Mines Historic Sites are included on the World Heritage List as two of eleven sites that form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property. For almost fifty years from 1830 this intriguing settlement accommodated hardened convicts sent to Tasmania from Britain. Every building, every feature has a story to tell. Created solely with the skills and labour of the convicts, this impressive place survives today for you to explore. Take to the Convict Trail and explore the infamous dog line and various outstations.
