Port Arthur Cards


When you arrive at Port Arthur and pay for your ticket, they give you a card and tell you to find your sentence.

I got the Queen of Hearts and E got the 6 of Diamonds. In the court room you find your convict and their sentence and then get to follow their story.

I was quite surprised at how little people were sent to jail for. If this was still the way I would most likely have been sent to jail for picking my nose.

Over all, this was a great way to get everyone involved and gain some understanding before going to the buildings and hearing, seeing and experiencing how prisoners would have lived. You get to keep these cards and if you go 50 more times you could end up with a whole pack of cards.

Over all Port Arthur was just stunning.
