Conversation with a Guide – Behind the scenes of ‘For the Term of His Natural Life’

10 Nov

The stories of Port Arthur are rich, detailed and personal and offer thought-provoking and fascinating insights.  Our expert guides have delved into a variety of them and wish to welcome you to a series of free talks this Spring.

Topics will change weekly and will be held on Wednesday nights from 4-5.00pm in the 1830 Restaurant & Bar.

Behind the scenes of the movie: For The Term Of  His Natural Life

Murder, romance, fiendish plots, cannibalism and as many fight and chase scenes as any blockbuster today.  Join Port Arthur guide Andrew for an in depth discussion around the original 1927 film and its impact on Port Arthur and Australian film history.

This is a FREE talk.  No site entry tickets required.  In order for us to stay COVID safe, seating is limited and we ask that you please reserve your tickets by phoning 1800 659 101 or by email

Don’t forget 1830 Restaurant & Bar will be open with a special Parmie menu.  Please let us know if you would like to stay for dinner afterwards.
