South Arm has a history which may surprise you…

Behind the beach shacks and million dollar views, the ghosts of another South Arm linger, from a time when the Peninsula provided opportunities for ex-convicts to re-establish themselves as respectable farming folk (or at least try to). Come hear these stories with renowned story teller James Parker as we stroll the South Arm Convict Trail.

Start point to be confirmed (potentially South Arm Community Centre)
