Penitentiary Rescue

While our Penitentiary is undergoing its very necessary conservation works, we knew our visitors would be disappointed not to be able to get a photo of this emblematic ruin. So we asked earlier visitors to submit their best photos to share with you.

Support our conservation works

Caring for and conserving the Port Arthur Historic Sites for future generations is expensive. While every visitor contributes to ongoing conservation with their entry fee, major projects like the work being undertaken on the Penitentiary require far more money than entry fees alone.

The Tasmanian and Australian governments have also contributed to conserving the Penitentiary, but we still need more funds so the building and the whole Port Arthur Historic Site will be available for future generations to visit. If you can, please consider making a donation. Donations can be made by contacting us on +61 (0)3 6251 2300 or by downloading the form below.

Thank you
