First Family Trip : Port Arthur

Two weeks ago our little family crossed the Tasman Sea and had a lovely holiday (more like mini break) in Tasmania.  We were super excited to take Gus on his first plane ride, and he was a superstar as usual and slept the whole way down on Daddy's lap.  
Tasmania is beautiful! I always had this picture in my head of what Tasmania would look like (kinda like England/a Rain Forest) and was surprised when we arrived how dry it was. We spent the first day in Hobart. (was quite bummed that we arrived on the Sunday and missed the world famous Salamanca Markets,Love me a market!!!) We walked around, had a fabulous brunch in Salamanca and went to bed super early cause this little family had been up since 4.30am.

We got up Monday morning, picked up the hire car and headed down to Port Arthur.  I have wanted to see Port Arthur since I was a little girl.  Ever since we learnt about Port Arthur in Primary School I have wanted to see the ruins and houses that scatter the coastline.  And We weren't disappointed! 
We spent close to 8 hours soaking up the history and stories.  It has to be one of the best places I have ever been too and Ross and I are already planning a second trip down there so we can go on the nightly Ghost Tour.  (thanks Granny and Granda in advance for looking after Gus :) )

Here is just a few photos of the amazing day we had.....

We can't wait to go back and explore more of the beautiful, rugged island.

Where has your favourite holiday destination been?

Love Lil xx
