Come to the Port Arthur Picnic this Sunday

20/03/2007

The Port Arthur Historic Site hosts a special day of art, music, food and fun for the whole family. Come and explore the work of 25 artists nestled amongst the buildings and gardens. Join one of four guided tours with a visual arts expert or take your own self-guided tour.

Over lunch keep one eye peeled for Roo’d, the turbo-charged giant bouncing kangaroos. These lively characters are a crossover of outback macho and inner city punk savvy - always Roo’d but never offensive!

Relax on the lawns with your picnic, or grab a snack at one of the Port Arthur eateries or special food stalls, while you soak up the sounds of the Derwent Valley Concert Band, then explore the rest of the fascinating Site.

There is special discounted admission on the day
$17 adult
$14 concession
$10 child
$35 family (2 adults and up to 6 children)

The Port Arthur Picnic is presented as part of Ten Days on the Island.
