Certificate of Excellence
Tired of staying in the same old impersonal hotel, unit or suburban house? Then stay in a 170 year old part of Australia's history. In continuous use since circa 1838, the Norfolk Bay Convict Station has a long history of warm hospitality and a strong connection with the history and landscape within which it sits. This iconic, absolute waterfront historic house was convict built in 1838 as part of the Port Arthur penal settlement. It now offers guests a unique experience whilst also offering warm, hosted and comfortable heritage accommodation a short 10 minute drive from Port Arthur and the many attractions of the Tasman Peninsula. Come, stay and be welcomed.

We stayed three nights in the family garden suite, which was good without being great. It's roomy, has a private bathroom and bunk beds in the same room as the queen bed so it served its purpose - clean, comfortable, quiet, non-haunted (or is it??)....More

Hi there, we stayed in the Jetty Room, which was a smaller room than some of the others, but would easily accommodate a portacot. You'll love the setting for the youngster! Regards, Greg
