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.

Beautiful location overlooking the water. The room was large, bathroom a good size. We had quite a big room with a couch area. Yes it is oldy-worldy, but that's surely what attracts people to stay! Can't understand the negative reviews on that point, if you...More
