Mason Cove of Port Arthur
Mason Cove is the bay with the landing pier for arriving boats and ships bringing new prisoners to the cruel settlement.

At the left side are the remains and a memory sign for the new cruel event happened on 28 April 1996:
The Port Arthur massacre was a killing spree which claimed the lives of 35 people and wounded 21 others mainly at the historic[citation needed] Port Arthur prison colony, a popular tourist site in south-eastern Tasmania, Australia. Martin Bryant, a 28-year-old from New Town, a suburb of Hobart, eventually pleaded guilty to the crimes and was given 35 life sentences without possibility of parole. He is now interned in the Wilfred Lopes Centre near Risdon Prison. The Port Arthur massacre remains Australia's deadliest killing spree and one of the deadliest such incidents worldwide in recent times.
At the present July. 2011 there was a very similar mega-crime in Norway done by the criminal madman Anders Breivik killing 76 innocent people.
