Day 8

Cygnet > Port Arthur

On the Road Tasmania - - News -

From Cygnet head to Port Arthur via the Arthur High­way (A9), with a stopover at Cam­bridge, the gate­way to the Coal River Val­ley wine re­gion. Call in at Sul­li­vans Cove Whisky (said to pro­duce one of the world’s finest sin­gle malt va­ri­eties), and stop by Wursthaus Fac­tory Out­let for char­cu­terie and small goods. Don’t for­get about the vino – Frog­more Creek is lo­cated nearby and is one of the state’s most-awarded winer­ies, so pick up a bot­tle or two. The drive to Port Arthur takes about an hour from Cam­bridge but al­low time to stop at the Tas­ma­nian Devil Un­zoo (the first of its kind in the world). Then ex­pe­ri­ence what it was like as a con­vict at the Port Arthur His­toric Site be­fore stay­ing the night at a nearby cot­tage, B&B or caravan park.
