The Port Arthur Harbour Cruise on the MV Marana is one of the great things to do near Hobart

The MV Marana operates the harbour cruise service at the Port Arthur Historic Site

Basic Student Package

School groups visiting the Port Arthur Historic Site can start with our Basic Student Package.

You might like to then add to this from our Optional tours or Self-guided activities. 

The Education Officer is always available by phone to discuss options before you make your booking!

Remember to allow plenty of time and if you can, spread your visit over the two days covered by your entry fee, especially if your group has spent long hours on a bus or plane!
