Stopping at 'The Blowhole', where the sea is hurled out the back of a collapsed cave in the eroding cliffs, and noting that there were wild penguins in the area as we passed Pirates Bay, we arrived at the 'Port Arthur Historical Site' a couple of hours after leaving Hobart.

The historical site at Port Arthur is geographically located in the far south east of Tasmania, and only accessible across a narrow spit of land.
