Port Arthur is located on the southeastern side of Tasman Island, which is owned by Australia. Here, from 1833 to 1877, there had been a convict prison with the harshest conditions of imprisonment. Today, the surviving structures of the former prison complex are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is worth visiting the prison premises, hearing amazing stories about incredible attempts to escape from prison. One of the convicts, for example, wore a kangaroo skin, but this did not save him from being shot at by a vigilant guard. It will also be interesting to see the prison commandant's residence, whose restored rooms contain authentic furniture of those times. On the other side of the bay, from 1834 to 1849, there had been a separate prison for boys Point Puer, but the conditions were no better than in an adult colony.
