Call it what you will, the ‘luck of the draw’, the ‘lottery of life’, ‘wheel of fate’; it led to the forced migration of tens of thousands of men, women and children, convicted and free alike, to Van Diemen’s Land, thousands alone to Port Arthur.
Fate here often hinged on social class, trade, integrity, and interpersonal aptitude. Would you be willing to spin that wheel?
Join us for an evening exploring the ‘wheel of fate’ of some of Port Arthur’s most notable individuals, see where they worked, slept and ate. You will have exclusive access to Port Arthur’s unique buildings, go behind the bars to explore 19th century life in this infamous prison settlement. Then sample the Tasman Peninsula’s produce in a dinner prepared by Port Arthur Historic Site’s head chef, as night falls within the walls of this World Heritage-Listed site, before returning to your accommodation.
Optional Upgrade: rare time with a conservation expert.
Private Tour with exclusive access to the silent separate prison and penitentiary; 3-course dinner and beverages (showcasing Tasmanian produce); Optional Upgrade: rare time with a conservation expert.
