TARANNA

TARANNA

Taranna is a small, sleepy settlement just north of the Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula.   Taranna was once the setting for the first railway in Australia and possibly the only one using human horsepower along its 7 km line. This human railway was designed to carry passengers and supplies and a team of four convicts was used to push carriages to and from the Norfolk Bay Convict Station, now a Bed and Breakfast retreat.
