I loved visiting Port Arthur as I really like the old buildings and stonework. Needless to say it was hard to narrow down these photos considering I had 100 or so from my day trip. I’ve limited them to the main buildings around The Penitentiary, The Asylum and The Church plus a bonus garden photo. There is so much more to see here though so if you plan on visiting I’d allow a full day at the least.
