Big orange visitor at Port Arthur

02/06/2011

The Port Arthur Historic Site received a visitor that was hard to miss today. The Aurora Australis, more usually seen in the port of Hobart in between expeditions to Antarctica for the Australian Antarctic Division, made an unexpected but welcome visit to Port Arthur.


On board were around 100 naval personnel who have been undertaking training exercises around the Tasmanian coast in recent days.


The Port Arthur call allowed a welcome chance to come ashore and recover their land legs.
