Wheel of Fate (4 hours)

Ever wonder what happens behind the ropes and barriers at Port Arthur Historic Site? 

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.


This tour is a private guided tour for a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 guests.

Tour includes site entry,  canapes and a two course lunch with drinks.

The tour runs for approximately 4 hours, covering a range of terrain over approximately 2 kilometres and is not suitable for anyone with restricted mobility.  Parts of the tour are conducted outdoors, so we recommend that you come prepared for the variety of weather conditions Tasmania often provides.
