Join us for a delicious two-course dinner at our restaurant 1830, before gathering up your lantern and following your guide out into the night on our very popular Ghost Tour.
With sweeping views of the Penitentiary, gardens and grounds, the 1830 restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxed meal with friends. Our menu uses fresh seasonal produce sourced from local growers and producers, and your After Dark package includes a glass of Tasmanian wine, beer or soft drink.
This convenient package means the hardest part of your night will be choosing between entree and main, or main and dessert. Click here to view the current Port Arthur 1830 After Dark Menu.
