Taranna - Cities, Towns and Localities

Taranna is a small township located about 10 km north of the Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula.

It was here that Australia’s built its first railway, covering a distance of almost 7 km between the jetty at Little Norfolk Bay and the prison. The line was designed to carry passengers and supplies being unloaded at Norfolk Bay to save the ships the hazardous journey around Cape Raoul. As well as being the first railway in Australia, it was also the only one using human horsepower along the length of the line.
