PREMIUM Tasman Peninsula/Port Arthur - photo-oriented private day tour (all-inclusive) - PhotographyTours.com.au

The Tasman Peninsula captivates visitors from around the globe, for its sublime and picturesque coastal scenery and impressive geological formations. It’s also the location of Tasmania's most significant UNESCO World Heritage-listed convict settlement, the Port Arthur Historic Site.

Travel through a landscape of rolling hills, eucalypt forests and a rugged coastline of towering sea cliffs. Explore the ruins of convict-built structures and learn about the life of the convicts stationed at Port Arthur. Hear compelling stories of endurance and adversity during an era that Tasmania was known as Van Diemen’s Land.

A considerable area of the Tasman Peninsula is protected by national park, and includes the mosaic-like Tessellated Pavement, situated on an intertidal rock shelf. Spend time exploring this spectacular coastline which is also home to an abundance of birds and wildlife. There may be plovers on the shoreline, eagles overhead, or even whales in the bay! Take advantage of your guide’s photographic know-how for unique photos, not just snapshots.

You’ll also enjoy an epic birds-eye view of all the grandeur from a helicopter. Hover high above pristine beaches and the spectacular dolerite columns and cliffs of Cape Hauy. Keep an eagle’s eye out for the ‘lanterns’, the ‘candlestick’ and the highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere. 

Just imagine the photos you could take!
