Severe weather causes tour cancellations
The Port Arthur Historic Site has canceled tours to the Isle of the Dead for today due to a severe weather warning being issued by the Bureau of Meteorology.
Winds of around 100km per hour are expected during the day, with gusts up to 130km per hour, which will be strong enough to bring down trees.
Harbour cruises are expected to proceed as normal, due to the forecast wind direction.
Tours to the Point Puer Boys Prison at Port Arthur are currently suspended due to maintenance works being carried out on the jetty.
