Overview  |  Drive Map Hobart to Port Arthur

The drive to Port Arthur and the Tasman Peninsula takes in a variety of different types of scenery. As you leave Hobart, drive first to Richmond, and then cut through to the A3 Tasman Highway, turning right and heading into Sorell. At Sorell it becomes the A9 Arthur Highway.

Follow the waterfrontage road through Dodges Ferry to Dunalley, and then rejoin the A9 Arthur Highway to Eaglehawk Neck and on to the Tasman Peninsula.

Waterfront Backroad  |  Drive Map Hobart to Port Arthur

I spent many days surfing at Park Beach and Carlton Beach as a youth. This diversion takes you along the beachfront road to Dunalley. Stop for a walk at Park Beach.

There is nothing between you and Antarctica except a lot of water and few remote islands. The beach faces due south, and it is cold a lot of the time. Great surf when it comes from a storm way out in the Southern Ocean, but it can be just a wind slop other times.

Drive Map Hobart to Port Arthur Denison Canal Dunalley

Dunalley  |  Drive Map Hobart to Port Arthur

The Denison Canal runs between the East Coast of Tasmania and Frederick Henry Bay at Dunalley. It cuts off many kilometres of rough water and forbidding coastline for local fishing boats.

It also provides a natural barrier for Tasmanian Devils and has helped in efforts to combat the devil facial tumour disease that has decimated wild Tasmanian Devils in recent years.

Eaglehawk Neck  |  Drive Map Hobart to Port Arthur

The next narrow neck of land cutting Port Arthur from the Mainland of Tasmania is Eaglehawk Neck. It was once the site of wild dogs chained across in an effort to stop escapees from the Convict Penitentiary getting any further.

Today it is famous for the amazing coastal formations of the Tasman Peninsula coast.
