Convict Tour (45 minutes)

Our essential history

The first convict tour started the day the prison colony closed in 1877.  We welcome you to join this tradition with one of our experienced guides providing the essential history of Port Arthur and its significance as a secondary punishment station.  The Convict Tour runs for approximately 45 minutes and is our most accessible tour with only a few hundred metres of walking over reasonably flat even ground.


The Convict Tour departs from the Visitor Centre daily at 9:30am, 10:30am, 12:00pm, 2:00pm and 3:45pm.

This walking tour runs approximately 45 minutes and covers a distance of only a few hundred metres over fairly flat even ground.

These tours operate in most weather conditions, so please be sure to be prepared for the conditions.
