Signage

Port Arthur 2013 Interpretation Signage Project

This year the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority is embarking on a project to redesign the signage across our three sites - Port Arthur, the Coal Mines and Cascades Female Factory Historic Sites.  In late 2012, we were successful in receiving a Tourism Quality grant through the Australian Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism. With this grant we hope to get our signage project off the ground!

The project will provide a framework for an innovative program of signage that will visually link PAHSMA's three sites, introduce visitors to their heritage values, establish connections with the convict story, and ensure that the more local stories of the community are told. The first stage of signage will be rolled out in the 2013-2014 financial year, with more to follow in 2014-2015.

Signs signs everywhere there's signs

The 2013 signage project funded by Commonwealth Government is drawing to a close, our trials have all been conducted across the site and new signs are popping up everywhere.  This project will continue into the 2014-2015 financial year with interpretation and wayfinding signage flowing out across our sites.
