Last week the Certificate III in Tour Guiding students travelled to the Tasman Peninsula for 3 days to study Tasmania’s internationally renowned Convict Heritage.
On the final day, the group were able to step into the shoes (or leg irons?) of a “Port Arthur Guide” and hone their interpretive guiding skills. Working in pairs, students studied a particular aspect of convict life, constructed a half-hour tour and presented it to their peers.
Topics included ‘Convict Industries’ and ‘Punishment at Port Arthur’.
