Port Arthur

Visit Port Arthur if you're interested in Australia's convict history.

When you purchase your ticket, they give you a card with information about a person connected with the site when it was active, such as a convict or a guard. The convict I drew was actually not convicted of a crime but was sent there for good measure. Funny in a sad sort of way.

Above are pictures of a hallway, one of the cells, and a garden on the grounds. We suspect it wasn’t as clean then as it is now. 

Below is just one example of some of the impressive hedges we saw in Australia and New Zealand. And a picturesque fence and bird. Port Arthur is on the water.
