Norfolk Bay Convict Station

5862 Arthur Highway , Taranna , TAS 7180
This iconic, absolute waterfront property combines history, a tranquil bay frontage, comfort, a yummy breakfast and personal service and is recommended by Lonely Planet, The Greenwood Guide and Trip Advisor.

Built in 1838 as part of the Port Arthur penal settlement, this beautiful old house now provides comfortable heritage accommodation within an easy drive of Port Arthur and the many attractions of the Tasman Peninsula.

Norfolk Bay Convict Station was Australia?s first railway station. Ships bound for Port Arthur from Hobart faced a dangerous journey across Storm Bay and round Cape Raoul. It was much safer to stay in the sheltered waters of Norfolk Bay, unload at the Convict Station and then load goods and passengers into rail carts and transport them five miles (8kms) across land where they could be unloaded and rowed to Port Arthur. The Port Arthur Historic site is a 10 minute drive away from the Norfolk Bay Convict Station.

It stands right on the waterfront of Little Norfolk Bay (look for the jetty as you travel into the township of Taranna and we are at the end of the jetty) and is ideally located for a visit to the Port Arthur Historic Site or any of the many other historic sites along the Convict Trail.

We are also centrally located as a base for appreciating the natural attractions of the Tasman Peninsula. Walking in the Tasman National Park ('the best coastal walking in Australia'), take a guided bush walking tour, go kayaking, horse riding, fishing, deep sea diving.

Or simply fish from the jetty or relax with a glass of wine in our lovely gardens and enjoy the views from the veranda of the house.

All rooms are warm and comfortable, with an historic charm without compromising on comfort. Breakfasts are hearty and feature home grown produce.
