Port Arthur Historical Site

Day Two in Tasmania was spent getting to Port Arthur from Hobart in the morning. The place is a vast expanse of land that was once a hardcore convict settlement where the worst of the worst criminal offenders from England and Ireland were sent. We did not have the luxury of time to explore every nook and corner but we did follow a short guided tour afterwhich we were free to roam the premises. We made the best use of time there. There were not many beautiful flowers here. The most interesting ones were the Apple blossoms. We eat apples from Australia, USA, China, Japan, Taiwan but have never seen the flowers.

Apple blossoms.
