Caught the shuttle to Port Arthur which is perfect if you have the late start on the 3capes track and have already been to Port Arthur. Our driver Anthony ( great bloke) was more of a tour guide though it was not expected. Great service.

The pick up was on schedule and the trip to Port Arthur and the stop at the Tasman National Park lookout was great, but commentary not audible enough. Having gone all the way to Port Arthur, would have enjoyed a short stop at the Lavender farm.
