Australia, Tasmania, Port Arthur, Main penitentiary at Port Arthur

Port Arthur, Australia

The Port Arthur Prison and Coal Mines are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage designation protecting the convict history of Australian settlement. The imposing Penitentiary, the chilling Separate Prison, the4 Convict Church and the ruins of the coal mine community bring to life the earliest European arrivals in this land. The playful naming of the on-site restaurant as “Felons Bistro” shows how far the current population has come.
