As the kids were not that interested in convict story with Elijah having done this in Year 3, we decided to not spend the $80 to go to Port Arthur, but instead we visited an old convict coal mine site near Limes Bay.

The ruins were pretty cool and the kids did not want to go into a cell, however under the strange but true facts- the coal mines were closed not because of the poor quality coal but because of rampant homosexuality!

It was the end to a long day and we got back to camp at around 8:30pm.
