  Governer's House, Port Arthur, Tasmania
by stevezero

There are more than sixty historic buildings on the Port Arthur penal colony site. Some of which ? like the poignant prison chapel ? are furnished and restored. Others, like the ivy-covered church, are picturesque ruins set in a landscape of green lawns, shady trees and paths sloping down to the cove. The beautiful setting makes it look more like a serene, old-world university campus than a prison
