Maingon Bay is further south than Port Arthur at end of Safety Cove Road.
There is a lookout right on the point, and Remarkable Cave.
The coastline is as impressive as The Great Australian Bight.
We drove down from Hobart this morning, stopping off at Copping for morning tea and a look at the museum.
The museum was out of this world. See the photos.
The drive through the Dunnally area was particularly sobering, seeing not just the fire damage but just how random the damage is in the town. Why just this house when the one next to it seemed more susceptible. You really have to feel for the people.
We checked in to the Inn at Port Arthur then went to the ruins. The Inn borders the heritage site and it has a private entrance to the site and within walking distance to the info center.
We spent 3 hours there and saw only half of it. Tomorrow we go back for the remainder.
The Inn restaurant overlooks the ruins.
