The most famous historic site in Tasmania is the former convict settlement at Port Arthur. Just 60 kilometres from Hobart, a visit to Port Arthur is a great day trip for the whole family. There are a variety of educational tours at Port Arthur that give you a history of the buildings, grounds and what life was like for the convicts detained on site hundreds of years ago.
Other historic sites located near Hobart include the Cape Bruny Lighthouse (on Bruny Island) and the shot tower in Taroona. Constructed in 1836, the Cape Bruny Lighthouse is the second-oldest lighthouse in Australia and offers visitors breathtaking views of the island and surrounding areas. The Hobart shot tower was built in 1870 and is the last remaining circular sandstone shot tower in the world. Walk the 259-step circular staircase for a unique view of the Derwent River, stop by the museum to learn about the history of the shot tower or grab a hot beverage in the tearoom
