More about the:
Home to the pydairrerme people for two thousand generations, the Tasman cultural heritage pre-dating Port Arthur.
Named by the Dutch when sailing by in 1642, The Tasman Peninsula was mapped before much of the Australian continent.
The Peninsula forms a natural prison and became the ideal spot to build Tasmania's largest probation station. A place to teach and skill up convicts who could then go into society with a needed skill. Not many escaped and those who did were faced with a strenuous trip. Confusing waterways and hungry dogs to avoid. Port Arthur is now World heritage Listed and makes up one of the eleven Australian sites of convict forced migration. There is however more to the Tasman than convict ruins, some of the Islands most fascinating rock formations are found around the coast line. Huge rock arches, blows holes, Australia's highest sea cliffs and naturally eroded pavements. There is something for both Nature and history lovers at not only the edge of Tasmania, but the world.. so come with us and explore Australia's most diverse peninsula, The Tasman.
