Conversations with a Guide: Stories of the Staveley Family

15 Sept

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.

Stories of the Staveley Family

Our second conversation in the series sees us joining Port Arthur Guide, Tammy, in her journey of uncovering the stories behind the names carved in stone or epitaphs on the Isle of the Dead in this forgotten corner of the world.
Tammy will share how the Staveley family sweated, bled and shed tears and her discoveries on what happened to them here and beyond the establishment.


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

1830 Restaurant & Bar will be open with a special Parmie menu.  Please let us know if you would like to stay for dinner afterwards!
