Taranna image

Taranna is a small, sleepy settlement just north of Port Arthur Historic Site on the shores of Norfolk Bay. Taranna was once the terminus for a tramway from Port Arthur - the first tramway in Australia and probably the only tramway using human horsepower along its 7-km line. Today, the town is noted for its picturesque Presbyterian Church. Also at Taranna is the popular Tasmanian Devil Unzoo where you can watch Tassie devils at feeding time and be mesmerised by the sea eagle show. The park is dedicated to wildlife protection and rescue and has extensive breeding programs. Taranna is also home to the Federation Chocolate Factory and Heritage Museum where you can watch the making of these fine handmade chocolates and learn about Tasmania's convict history, blacksmithing, and saw-milling artifacts.
