Port Arthur was a place where convicts were transported from England in th eighteen hundreds. Once the convicts arrived here some for crimes like stealing a loaf of bread they were treated like animals leg irons and ball and chain to make sure there was no escape but they still tried. Solitary confinement whippings it is no wonder the place is haunted there is the prison itself,the parsons house and the commandents house all belived to be haunted not to mention the Isle of the dead where the prisoners were all taken to be buried.The place looks like a great big sandstone town. It is a tourist attraction now but you can feel the misery from the buildings seeping out.
