Property Details

The Norfolk Bay Convict Station at Taranna is a convict built home near Port Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula.

This historic home has five bedrooms with all the modern comforts. Every room has its own bathroom, flat screen TV and DVD player, refrigerator and tea/coffee making facilities. You can enjoy our hearty Continental buffet breakfast of home made bread, jams, cereals, fruits and yogurt.

Indulge and relax in our guest massage chair, or enjoy a glass of Tasmanian wine or beer in front of the wood fire in the cosy sitting room, in the garden or on the verandahs overlooking tranquil Norfolk Bay. There are comprehensive book and DVD libraries.

The Tasman Peninsula is also famous for its 300 metre (1,000 foot) sea cliffs, walking tracks, eco boat trips, diving, and its flora and fauna. There are number of good local restaurants, and you can kayak, play golf, or try fishing from the jetty.

Norfolk Bay Convict Station was built to service Australia's first convict railway station and had a pivotal part of the Tasman Peninsula's history. The train had the dubious reputation of being the only human powered one in Australia, and carried goods from Norfolk Bay to Port Arthur convict prison - seven kilometres away.
