    Tasmanien (5)

    February 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Wir wandern zurück zum Auto und brechen gegen Mittag Richtung Port Arthur auf. Die Landschaft wechselt jetzt von Wald Richtung Wiesen. In Port Arthur besuchen wir zunächst die Remarkable Caves bevor wir an einer Nachtwanderung im historischen Port Arthur, das als britisches Gefängnis gebaut wurde, teilnehmen. Dieser Ort ist Nummer drei in Australien in Bezug auf paranormale Erscheinungen. Da wir keinen kostenlosen Campingplatz finden, bietet uns der Tourguide an, unser Zelt auf seiner Farm aufzuschlagen. Das Angebot nehmen wir gerne an.

    Auf der Wanderung lasse ich übrigens mein iPhone fallen und das Glas zerspringt in tausend Teile 😩

    Port Arthur

    February 28, 2015 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Make bad guys, good guys. That was the task of the rehabilitation center(or prison, as people would call it!). A pretty impressive institution. I also fell like that fulfills my cultural responsibility as well.

    Straftäter durch harte Arbeit wieder zu guten Menschen zu machen, dass war die Aufgabe von Port Arthur (eine Art Gefängnis), eine beeindruckende Einrichtung.
    Ich konnte auch Fußketten und eine Dunkelzelle ausprobieren. Ich glaube damit erfülle ich auch meine kulturellen Pflichten in Tasmanien!

    Port Arthur ~ Tasmania

    October 29, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Spent Leanne’s birthday in Port Arthur which was a prison for British and Irish criminals in the 19th century. On the way back we had a quick stop off at Pirate’s bay where we saw a quick glimpse of a whale in the bay!

    Tony se z prace osvobodil nebyvale brzy, takze uz po druhe jsme nabrali kurz Tasman Peninsula a ve 4 vstoupili na pudu nejznamejsi kolonialni veznice v Australii.
    Port Arthur otevreli ve 30. letech 19. stoleti a zrusili ho o 40 let pozdeji. V dobach jeho nejvetsi slavy tu v jeden okamzik bylo "ubytovano" pres 2000 trestancu, za dobu jeho existence pres 160 000 lidi. Tresty od 7 let az po nadozivoti. Uprchnout temer nemozno, v nejuzsim miste - Eaglehawk Neck - ma poloostrov jen asi 50 m a strezila ho tu smecka neuprosnych hafanu (Jednou se pry kdosi pokusil utect obleceny v klokani kozesine, ale na heho jeden z vojaku namiril zbran s vidinou chutne vecere, radeji se prozradil. Ale myslenka dobra ;-).)
    Pruvodce Andrew nebyl z nejzabavnejsich, ale vydrzeli jsme s nim az do konce uvodni prohlidky (v cene 37$ vstupneho) a pak se jali prozkoumavat ruiny starych cel, samotek, kostela...

    ...a po noci stravene u prijemneho ohne v ne az tak prijemnem kempu v F. Bay jsme Port Arthur prozkoumavali dal. Domy strazcu, kaplana, doktora... a v 11 hod. se na veznici podivali z oceanu z paluby trajektu (opet v cene).
    Pristav je pry hlubsi nez Rotterdam (moc se mi tomu nechce verit, ale budiz :-/) a kdyby byl na jinem miste, s nakladnimi lodemi by se tu udajne dvere netrhly. A jsou tu zraloci. A obcas tu zahlidnou i velryby.Read more

    Port Arthur

    February 22, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Today we took the highway out of Hobart heading north to Port Arthur. Despite what you might think Hobart traffic can be quite bad and there was a lovely traffic jam of cars heading into the City, luckily we were heading in the other direction.

    We are trying to take more scenic roads where time allows so we took the coastal road past some amazing scenery with smooth water and big trees. At the entrance to the Port Arthur peninsula there are some interesting rock formations called the Tessellated Pavement, a blow hole, Tasman Arch, and The Devils Kitchen. See some photos below.

    After that it was on to Port Arthur itself.

    Port Arthur is really well set up and a great place to spend a day. The buildings are amazing and the history fascinating. We had a 20 min boat cruise followed by a 40 min walking tour of the main points. The buildings have been well restored where possible and where not what’s left has been well preserved.

    Essentially Port Arthur was a very unpleasant place to be for everyone, prisoner as gaoler alike. Very remote and inhospitable with tough conditions.

    Its more recent history has been tastefully recognised as well.

    After hanging out at Port Arthur for most of the day we headed back to Sorrell and then North to our accommodation for the next couple of nights, Hamptons on the Bay just near Swansea.

    Tomorrow we are visiting Freycinet National Park.
