I had a wonderful day. I was picked up on time from my accommodation and the driver's commentary on the way to Port Arthur wa...s very interesting and informative. I enjoyed the stopover at the Devil's Kitchen - the scenery was beautiful.
I loved wandering around Port Arthur and especially enjoyed the visit to the Isle of the Dead.
Thanks for an excellent day.
