    Fantastic Philip! Makes such a sad location look tranquil. Certainly an imposing rendition which does the location credit, and supports the many sad stories behind it.

  • there is a definite feel about Port Arthur , thanks Baz

    G’day Philip – everything’s playing up, so I can’t enlarge this delightful panorama at all. Tasmania is a place I have yet to visit, so will have to rely on your coverage! This place certainly has a very sad history. :)george

  • well worth a visit George, i stayed at Port Arthur a few days there is much to see, and yes the place definitely has a feel especially of a night when you wander at lantern light on the Ghost Tour
