The Friday Photo #100 – Tasmania’s convict history

Port Arthur, Tasmania

On a road trip around the island of Tasmania a couple of years ago, I spent a fascinating few hours at Port Arthur.  Home to Australia’s most infamous penal colony back in the nineteenth century, the site now attracts much more willing visitors to wander round the ruined buildings and admire the stunning natural setting.

On an unrelated note, this is the 100th Friday Photo that I have posted on this site.  When I published the first picture in the series back in 2009 I had absolutely no idea that it would still be going nearly two years later.  That it is is due entirely to the ongoing support and comments I receive on this blog every day from people just like you … thanks so much!

I truly appreciate it.
