Isle of the Dead tours cancelled again today


The Port Arthur Historic Site has cancelled tours to the Isle of the Dead for the second day in a row, due to forecast strong winds.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued another Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds in Southern Tasmania. Under the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority's operational procedures, such a warning triggers suspension of the tour in the interests of the saftey of the public and staff.

The situation will be reviewed later in the day. The Bureau expects the winds to moderate gradually.
