The world's largest surviving carnivorous marsupial, the devil has a thick-set, squat build, with a relatively large, broad head and short, thick tail. The fur is mostly or wholly black, but white markings often occur on the rump and chest. Body size also varies greatly, depending on the diet and habitat. Adult males are usually larger than adult females. Large males weigh up to 12 kg, and stand about 30 cm high at the shoulder.

Located 5 kilometres south of Port Arthur you’ll find the spectacular Remarkable Cave. Visible at the viewing platform by a 130 stair pathway, the caves can also be accessed from beach level allowing you to explore inside the cave. From the viewing platform you’ll definitely notice the beauty of this cave and that the entrance to the cave from the sea is shaped like a map of Tasmania, however by venturing inside you’ll be rewarded with a much more spectacular sight, allowing you stunning 360 degree views. During rough weather the sand in the cave is often washed out to sea making the cave inaccessible without getting wet, however this does not detract from Remarkable Cave’s beauty.

Coal Mines Historic Site The Coal Mines Historic Site was Tasmania’s first operational mine, established as a much-needed local source of coal, but also as a place of punishment for the ‘worst class’ of convicts. Along with the Port Arthur Historic Site, the Coal Mines Historic Site is included in the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage property. A visit to the Coal Mines is a fascinating and rewarding adjunct to any visit to the Port Arthur Historic Site. The Site is open every day, entry is free and no bookings are necessary.

Popular Menu Item Banana Split Banana Split Still a favourite (especially for the kids) in ice cream parlours! A whole banana is split down the middle and served with 3 scoops of ice cream of your choice, usually vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, topped with strawberry or chocolate sauce, chopped nuts and whipped cream. A great option to share. Ice Cream Popular Menu Item Oysters.Oysters,Fresh or cooked they are wonderful and washed down with a glass of local bubbles. Lobsters are very popular as long as your wallet can afford it! Tends to be expensive most of the year but people still love them. Usual way of serving is just simply grilled and covered in garlic and herb butter.
