Osborne Heli Tours operate a selection of scenic flights, unique experiences and custom itineraries from Port Arthur, situated on the stunning and rugged Tasman Peninsula. Breath-taking views from above await as you soar next to the towering sea cliffs of the three capes, witness the lighthouse standing defiantly on Tasman Island, catch a glimpse of surfers braving the treacherous swells around Shipstern Bluff and marvel at Port Arthur historic site from high up.
The beautifully presented grounds are a stark contrast to the harsh conditions endured by the convicts. You can walk through the buildings on your own with an information book in hand or there are free guided tours. The entry fee also includes a short ferry ride around the harbour. The ferry takes you past the dockyard, the Point Puer Boys’ Prison and the Isle of the Dead cemetery. There are a range of other tours available at extra cost including a ghost tour and tours of the boys’ prison and the cemetery. The Port Arthur historic site lies at the very tip of the Tasman Peninsula and is UNESCO World Heritage listed. This historic penal colony was placed in this idyllic setting with a green mountain backdrop because of the harbour (for ease of unloading prisoners transported from England) and because it was situated on a peninsula it was easier to protect.
