Could you have escaped from Port Arthur?

Port Arthur was the perfect place for a prison – it was remote and isolated by both the foreboding natural landscape and deep tempestuous seas. Despite the perilous odds, escape attempts were frequent and took many forms.

Convicts went to extreme measures, men whose desire for freedom far outweighed any fear of consequences. They were not intimidated by authority and were more than willing to risk severe punishment and ultimately survival.

Join us for a 60 minute tour to meet the convicts who risked everything to Escape Port Arthur.


Tour departures are at 11:00am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm daily (except Christmas Day) and are subject to availability.

Tour runs for 60 minutes and covers a range of terrain over 1.5 kilometres and is not suitable for anyone with restricted mobility.  This tour is conducted outdoors, so best to be prepared for all kinds of Tasmanian weather.


Adult $15
Child $5
Family $35
Concession $10

*tour prices are in addition to normal site entry fees

Children aged 17 years and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Bookings are essential.
