Dunalley

Dunalley is a small fishing village on the way to Port Arthur, surrounded by open countryside and beautiful waterways and known for its super-fresh seafood.
In Dunalley, you can buy the best fish and chips you're ever likely to find. Try the laid-back Dunalley Fish Market with crayfish cooked daily and oysters opened to order, or the Dunalley Waterfront Caf?, a contemporary art gallery hosted in an atmospheric 1942 timber building and a boutique restaurant highlighting the best regional produce.
The town is built around the man-made Denison Canal, hand-dug between 1901 and 1905, with its swing bridge for road traffic. The swing bridge allows boats easy access between Blackman's Bay and Frederick Henry Bay. Local legend has it that the toll to the gatekeeper was a bottle of beer.
Dunalley is a 45-min drive (57 km) south of Hobart.

The Club hosts regular competitions including the Saturday men's competition, Wednesday and Sunday mixed competitions, and Friday morning ladies' competition.
Like many Tasmanian golf courses, the Dunalley Golf Club treats golfers with fantastic views of the surrounding forest and Norfolk Bay. The club house is open for drinks, nibbles and delicious meals Wednesday through to Sunday when roast luncheons are a highlight.

Coal Mines Historic Site


Coal Mines Historic Site is situated on the Tasman Peninsula near Saltwater River. It was Tasmania's first operational mine. Developed both to limit the colony's dependence upon costly imported coal from New South Wales, as well as serving as a place of punishment for the "worst class" of convicts from Port Arthur, the mine was operational for over 40 years.
Today, the Coal Mines offers visitors the chance to discover among the uncrowded ruins and scenic vistas a different perspective on Tasmania's convict history. It is a great place to explore on foot, with a number of tracks and paths around the extensive site. There are signs and displays to guide you around and inform about the history of the Site. A printed guide to the Coal Mines is available from the Visitor Centre at the Port Arthur Historic Site.
The Coal Mines site is approximately a 75-minute drive from Hobart and a 25-minute drive from Port Arthur. A visit is a fascinating adjunct to any visit to the Port Arthur Historic Site.
Entry is free and there are basic picnic and toilet facilities at the Site, but it is not staffed.

Eaglehawk Neck Historic Site


The isthmus of land only a few hundred metres wide at Eaglehawk Neck is the reason Port Arthur was chosen as the site for a prison -- the tiny strip of land was easily patrolled, and in those times few were able to swim and make a break for it that way.
A line of dogs, tethered at short intervals, roused the soldiers if anyone tried to get by.
The Officers Quarters has been restored as a museum interpreting the history and life at Eaglehawk Neck. The 1832 quarters is reputed to be the oldest wooden military building remaining in Australia.

Tasmanian Devil Unzoo


Welcome to the "Unzoo" of the future, a new style of wildlife experience where you'll discover the unique animals and plants of Tasmania!
Come face to face with our famous Tasmanian devils, join our interesting devil presentations every hour or so and learn how we are saving the last isolated, natural population of endangered devils left in the world.
You can hand feed friendly forester kangaroos, meet endemic quolls and noisy wattlebirds and laugh at cheeky little parrots in our Birds of the Bush encounter.
So what is an Unzoo?
For us it is an experiment to change our 40 year old family animal park into a ground-breaking "zoo without cages". After 10 years of effort it is now working well with wild wallabies, echidnas, possums, native fish and nearly 100 bird species living around our Unzoo bush garden.
To best discover these wonderful creatures join one of our expert guides on a nature walk through the bush.
Above all, though, our real focus is to help preserve the Tasmanian devil. Your entrance fees fund this effort.
We are open every day (except 25 December) at Taranna, about one-hour from Hobart on the way to Port Arthur on Tasman Peninsula.
