Along the way we will stop in at Pirates Bay lookout, which overlooks Eagle Hawk Neck and the Tasman Peninsula. Once you have taken a dozen photos of this stunning view, it's on to the world renowned and one of Tasmania's major tourist attractions, Port Arthur Historical Site. 3.5 hours has been allocated to explore the site. In that time, you be able to join the introductory walking tour (40mins) and enjoy the harbour cruise (25mins) which is included in your site entry.
