Support and Donations

The Port Arthur Historic Site does not generate enough money from its tourism operations to fully fund the conservation program for our three World Heritage-listed Historic Sites – Port Arthur, Coal Mines and Cascades Female Factory.

That’s why we need your help.

The Port Arthur Conservation Fund has been established to help organisations and individuals to contribute financially to the ongoing management of the sites. All support is welcome, and donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible.

Your donation will help to ensure the continued protection and conservation of the Port Arthur Historic Sites. Click here to read more about our current conservation projects and programs.

Donate through the Cultural Gifts Program

This Commonwealth Government program provides tax incentives to encourage gifts of culturally significant items from private collections to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives.

If you have something that you think might be a valuable addition to our collections, please contact us to discuss making a donation through the Cultural Gifts Program.
