Stop At: Remarkable Cave, Cave Road, Port Arthur, Tasmania 7182 Australia

We will meet you at the entrance of the Port Arthur Historic Site Visitor Centre. From here it is only a short drive to Maingon Point, where you can climb down and up more than 200 steps to see the natural wonders of the Remarkable Cave. This beautiful cave has been carved out of the sandstone cliff face by the sea to form a rock bridge. At high tide, it’s particularly wonderous as you watch the water wash in and out of the cave and view its layers of dolerite and sandstone, rocks which form most of Tasmania's geology. For those who are not able to negotiate the steps, there is an alternative small path that provides coastal views and information on local birds and plants.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Coal Mines Historic Site, Coal Mines Road via Premaydena, Saltwater River, Tasmania 7186 Australia

The tour group will then continue along the circular route around the Tasman Peninsula toward Saltwater River and visit the ruins of the oldest coal mine in Tasmania which was created both for its much-needed source of coal and as a place of punishment for the ‘worst-class’ of convicts. You could spend hours walking among the ruins of this very interesting site which in conjunction with the Port Arthur Historic Site, makes up part of the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage properties.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Eaglehawk Neck Historic Site, Arthur Highway, Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania 7180 Australia

From here, the excursion takes the route through to Eaglehawk Neck and past the quaint seaside village of Doo Town, with its quaint and humorous house names all containing the word Doo. Doo Town emerged in the 1930s as a small village of holiday cottages or 'shacks' and Hobart architect Eric Round named his shack 'Doo I'. The idea soon caught on with Doo-Me and Doo-Us and today most of the town's shacks have 'Doo' names.

Barry was a great tour guide. We had ample time at all of the stops, made a short stop for lunch (own expense), and he even fit in a stop at the lavender farm. Highly recommend.

i was not specifically impressed by the quality of the tour. Very little commentary, even when we visited some historical mine ruins. Except the first stop where we see a beautiful cave, the other stops were not very impressive. The last stop at the lavender farm was totally ridiculous for the amount of time we spent there. It was our last stop before going back to cruise ship, so why would someone decide to get a lunch there when we can have a good free lunch on board? To admire the scenery, 10-15 minute would have been sufficient. Also disappointed that the optional unzoo stop had to be requested in advance but no one told us to do so. We have 0 communication with the provider prior to the trip. The driver, however, was nice and accommodating to drop us there, and the timing was perfect - we got to see the feeding of the Tasmanian devil, otherwise we would not have a chance to see him close by as they hide during the day. that is a reason I give it 3* instead of 2* rating. Overall, I would recommend it only if you have nothing else to do in this port.

The day was great. Ideal weather and the tours guides, husband and wife, were wonderful. Saw many wonderful places, the Lavender Farm was the last stop. That was good because it was a short stop.

Four of us went on this tour with David as a guide. We enjoyed seeing the coal mine, blow hole, devil's kitchen and Tasmin Arch. However, we were disappointed in David as a guide. He was not very informative of the sites and unable to answer many several questions we had. He was very political and spoke more of that than of the sites. Also, the bus was very hot in the back and the intercom system was very hard to hear because of the loud bus noises. Had another tour the next day and David was to be our guide again but we asked for another guide and was given Jack. Will review that separately.

Port Arthur was full of neat opportunities to explore a variety of buildings where the convict community once lived as they worked.
The views of the sea from the various cliffs was spectacular! saw Tasman Arch, Devil's Kitchen and enjoyed other very photogenic stops along the peninsula.
