Stay in Living History

This absolute waterfront, historic guest house and bed and breakfast is centrally located between Eaglehawk Neck and Port Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula and overlooks the sheltered waters of Little Norfolk Bay. The Convict Station has been offering hospitality to travellers since the 19th century, operating as the first Pub on the Tasman Peninsula and then offering accommodation to seafarers when the jetty was the entry port to the Tasman Peninsula.

From here you can explore the history and wild beauty of the Tasman Peninsula. Take short or long bush walks in the Tasman National Park along the highest sea cliff coast in the southern hemisphere or explore the coastline by taking the popular and award winning Tasman Island Cruise eco boat tour; fish, scuba dive, sea kayak or visit Port Arthur just 10 minutes away or one of the many other historic sites on the Peninsula. Indulge your taste buds with the fresh local fare or just fish off the jetty, wander in the gardens and enjoy the grounds surrounding the house.

Relax in our lovely guest lounge and feel free to use our dining room for meals or working in. The included breakfast is a generous and home made buffet and features our own home made jams and marmalades, home made breads, our home made fruit compote, preserved and fresh fruit and soft boiled eggs.

Our climate is tempered by our proximity to the sea so winters are cool and summer temperatures are a delightful average of 25 degrees. Come stay in living history and soak up the beauty of the place - plan to stay at least two nights if you want to do justice to the area.

This absolute waterfront property is centrally located on an acre block in Taranna on the Tasman Peninsula. We are 7 kilometres south of Eaglehawk Neck and 10 kilometres north of Port Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula and we overlook Norfolk Bay. We are located just off the Arthur Highway at 5862 Arthur Highway in Taranna - look for the jetty in Taranna - we are just opposite it!

Allow at least 1.5 hours to enjoy the scenic drive from Hobart to Port Arthur. The drive along the Tasman and Arthur Highways forms part of the Convict Trail Touring Route - watch out for yellow convict arrow markers indicating places of historic interest worth visiting.

The route along the Arthur Highway takes in breathtaking seascapes, passing through rolling farmlands and little villages, past vineyards and sweeping bays.

A regular bus service run by Tassie Link connects Hobart with the Tasman Peninsula daily but you really need a car to be able to fully explore the area.

We arrived early as we had to pass the Convict Station on our way to Port Arthur. So glad we did. We were given such helpful advice and information about Port Arthur, the coal mines and a boat trip which improved our stay no end. The property is in a beautifu position and we were sad that we only had such a short time in the area (one night) so had no time to investigate the property. If you are in the area it is a lovely place to stay5/5 by , Solihull, UK
