Enjoy this 3 to 4 hour, small-group excursion from Port Arthur, taking a circular route around the southern part of the Tasman Peninsula. Highlights include Maingon Bay lookout, the Remarkable Cave, the Coal Mine Historic Site, Eaglehawk Neck, the Tasman Arch, the Devil's Kitchen, Doo Town the Tasman Blowhole and the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, the latter being optional, at own expense.

Than, continue along the circular route toward Saltwater River and visit the ruins of the oldest coal mine in Tasmania. You could spend hours walking among the ruins of this very interesting historic site.

From here, the excursion takes the route through Doo Town, with its quaint and humorous house names, where you can view the Tasman Blowhole, the Devil's Kitchen, and the Tasman Arch. On the return to Port Arthur, a stop at the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (own expense) to safely view these animals in a natural habitat. If you are lucky, you could be there at feeding time.
