Surrounded by shark-infested waters and connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus of land, Port Arthur ranks among Australia's top historical sites and heritage areas.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Sat): explore and take pictures at Tessellated Pavement, appreciate the extensive heritage of Port Arthur Historic Site, and then get to know the fascinating history of Cape Raoul.

Plan my Port Arthur trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Singapore, Singapore to Port Arthur is an approximately 12.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi; or do a combination of flight, bus, and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Singapore to Port Arthur. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Singapore in September: high temperatures in Port Arthur hover around 18°C and lows are around 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) so you can go by car to Hobart.
