Highest visitor numbers on record

July 23, 2015

Port Arthur Historic Site has recorded its largest ever visitation since opening to the public with 272,653 day and 34,097 evening visitors over the 2014-15 financial year.

It is pleasing to enjoy growth over the 12 months, especially with increased visitation from China, passengers from cruise ships stopping en route to Hobart,  as well as significant growth in what is traditionally our quieter winter months, which has no doubt been assisted by winter events such as Dark MOFO, Festival of Voices and AFL games in Hobart.
