Call it what you will – the ‘luck of the draw’, the ‘lottery of life’, ‘wheel of fate’ – it led to the forced migration of tens of thousands of men, women and children to Van Diemen’s Land. Their fate often hinged on social class, trade, wiles and charm.

With exclusive access to Port Arthur’s unique buildings, you will be led behind the bars to explore the ‘Wheel of Fate’ of some of Port Arthur’s most notable individuals and sample the region’s amazing produce, prepared by our in-house chef.
