Hump Day Post: Port Arthur, Tasmania

Last year we visited Tasmania and I guess no visit there would be complete without stopping at Port Arthur.

‘Port Arthur is a small town and former convict settlement on the Tasman Peninsula, in Tasmania, Australia. It’s one of Australia’s most significant heritage areas and an open air museum. It was named after George Arthur, the Lieutenant Governor of Van Diemen’s Land. The settlement started as a timber station in 1830, but it is best known for being a penal colony.’ – Wikipedia

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)
