The day we went was raining and it was dissapointing as the cruise was freezing and you could not see out the windows due to foggy windows and rain. The ponchos that the gift shop provides are smelly but do stop the rain wetting your clothes if you dont take wet weather gear. The disability vehicles were also picking people up who had wet weather gear on who were not disabled but not offering the people who did not have wet weather gear, so make sure you take it just in case. If coming from QLD like us didnt want to waste money on jackets ect that we would never wear again so stinky ponchos were ok!

was a good experience knowledgeable tour guide of PA.. Restaurant food is a bit over priced, Have at least one service station open for fuel, all closed till Hobart, after the ghost tour, lucky half a tank just made it back! Pitty the Glost tour guide wasn't very knowledgeable of the history, to incorporate better ghost tours that to me was a waste of money.. Average. expected more and maybe something happen on it..Like a door open or bang..

A beautiful location with a brutal history - but the interactive experiences and guides bring out the lives and personalities of the people who lived there. So much to see and do, with the included 25 minute boat cruise very enjoyable. The voucher exchange worked easily and overall it was a brilliant day!
