Port Arthur – Day Two


Early rise and greeted with a gorgeous blue sky. I ventured out along the shore front before heading to the Port Arthur Historic site. I had seen the site the night prior so I was keen to see the site during the day.

I decided to follow a short tour to get a better lay of the land. The historic site is huge so there is a lot to see. I spent the morning chasing the best light and the Penitentiary simply looks stunning in the morning light. Followed that with a quick tour on the bay checking out some of the island stories.

There really is some amazing history here in Port Arthur, I can totally recommend if you ever get the chance. I think also there is a lot to learn from some of the beliefs they had in the 1800’s, specifically to do with harsh punishment for repeat offenders.
