PreCamp Blog09 - Day 7 - Port Arthur

12th January
This morning it was nice to enjoy a slightly later-than-usual breakfast before we left our Hobart accommodation and headed out of town over the Tasman Bridge toward Port Arthur.  Along the way we stopped at Eaglehawk Neck to look at some amazing sea cliffs and other features in the Tasman National Park.

Port Arthur had heaps of old buildings which date way back to the 1830s.  A tour guide told about the history of the place and we went on a cruise across the bay to the Isle of the Dead.  Once again the weather was hot with temperatures in the 30s.  At least this was not as bad as Melbourne and Adelaide which have been sweltering in the 40s for the past few days.

After leaving Port Arthur the bus trip back took us via Richmond and a BBQ dinner at Ross.  These old towns were setup in convict times and, in Ross, we had time to wander the whole town which was almost entirely made up of historic sandstone buildings.  Some people were not so keen on the history lesson and just lazed beside the river while we waited for the sausages to cook.

Most of the evening was taken with the final part of the bus trip back to camp with just enough time in our cabin groups before bed.
