The Tasman Peninsula is a wonderful place to visit any time of year.   An Island within an Island, nature is secluded, the scenery wonderful, the people friendly.
Explore the Convict Trail, where several probation stations were located for farming, coal mining, tree felling, boat building and more.  Included are the Port Arthur Historic site, just 20 minutes from Yarrabee, the Coal Mines Historic Site, Probation stations at Saltwater River; Impression Bay at Premaydina where convict ships with Cholera were quarantined; and at Koonya. 
 
The area is full of Australia's early convict history to explore.

Other things to do on the peninsula include the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo where you can come face to face with these gnarly creatures as well as the Forrester Kangaroo, Pademelons and other wildlife.   Nearby is the Chocolate Factory - well worth a visit.

Perhaps surfing or nature walking is more your style.  There are so many great beaches and surf spots on the peninsula, it is known the world over as one of the greatest places to surf. There are great walks to the Remarkable Cave near Port Arthur, Roaring Beach near Nubeena, or the Clark Cliff walk at Koonya just to name a few.
