Norfolk Bay Convict Station
Before this waterfront homestead became the first inn in the district it was the loading station for Port Arthur’s convict-powered railway supply line, which used to run goods and people over five hilly miles to the prison. It has been a guesthouse since 1900 and each of the five rooms is packed with antiques and memorabilia from its long history. There’s a comfortable sitting room with open fire and a sunny breakfast room with water views. There’s no shortage of fantastic sightseeing nearby, but if you fancy a more laid-back day, they have a dinghy for hire and can tell you where the best flathead fishing is.
