A courtesy shuttle buggy provides a regular drop-off and pick-up service around the site for visitors with limited mobility.
If you only choose to visit Port Arthur for the day then you have 4 hours to explore the historic site and you will be able to purchase something to eat and drink at the visitor centre.

An alternative shuttle bus option is to spend less time at the Port Arthur Historic Site (2.5hours) and also spend 1.5 hours visiting the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo.
Tasmanian Devil Unzoo is an unconventional wildlife park which rather than exhibiting animals in a traditional enclosure it invites its visitors into natural habitats in which cages or barriers are removed or concealed and animals are encouraged to interact with the environment.
During your visit you will meet their resident Tasmanian Devils, see brushtail possums, their gentle wallabies and have access to over two kilometres of nature trails, using their self-guided map and bird animal checklists.
