The last part of my trip is dedicated to Tasmania, the separate island in the South of Australia. I flew in early in the morning to Hobart airport, where I got a rental car and immediately drove to Port Arthur, almost the end of the so-called Tasman peninsula, a landstrip in the Southeast part of the island. There I visited the impressive historic site of the former prison(s) located in the area, which included a short boat cruise. Also on the peninsula, I went to the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park (or “Unzoo” as it is now called) to see some of the clumsy aggressive beasts in real life, and drove along the coastal attractions like Remarkable Cave, Tasman Blowhole or Tesselated Pavement and several lookouts.
In the afternoon, I drove to Hobart, the state capital of Tasmania, and did a short sightseeing walking tour around the main spots of interest, enjoying local seafood for dinner.
