Looking at these photos — these beautiful ruins in this lovely green lush place — it’s just so hard to imagine that Port Arthur was the place people were sent as punishment in the 1800’s.
One of the cool things they do at Port Arthur is that when you arrive, they give you a playing card and using your playing card you can trace the life of ‘your’ prisoner. My prisoner had been sent to Port Arthur for stealing two £5 notes!
While out on a roadtrip, we stumbled across the ‘International Festival of Lighthouses’ (who knew that was a thing?) at the Split Point Lighthouse, I’m partial to a lighthouse, so we stopped and had a look around.
