With a coverage of only 225.3 square kilometres, is the smallest of New Zealand’s national parks. The park consists of forested, hilly country to the north of the valleys of the Takaka and Riwaka Rivers, and is bounded to the north by the waters of Golden Bayand Tasman Bay. It is named after Abel Tasman, who in 1642 became the first European explorer to sight New Zealand.
Shark Island is located at the mouth of Rose Bay on Port Jackson (Sydney Harbour). Over the last 120 years up until 1975, Shark Island was used as an animal quarantine area, public recreation reserve and naval storage depot. Shark Island is said to have resembled a shark and the shallow waters around it presented a constant danger to shipping, especially with the growth of trade in the early 19th century.

Luzern, Switzerland: A prison hotel from the middle of the 19th century until just a decade ago, this jail hotel goes beyond simply renting out former prison cells as overnight rooms. For an extra price, visitors can stay in the former library or the director’s office, both of which have been turned into luxury suites.
Every part of the prison has been put to some new and creative use without compromising the essence of the original layout or the prison contents for that matter – the library is still full of old prison books for you to peruse on your stay !
Boston, Massachusetts: The infamous Charles Street Jail was originally a model prison in the 1800s that fell into disrepair in the mid-1900s.
Prone to riots and subject to physical decay, it was officially condemned to closer decades before it finally shut its doors (as a prison) in the 1990s. Now, however, it has reopened its doors as an amazingly luxurious four-star jail hotel that has former inmates shocked, impressed and perhaps a bit jealous.
Mt. Gambier, Australia : The Mount Gambier Jail experience is anything but luxurious. In fact, this place markets its rooms as budget accommodations for cheapskates and backpackers.
Very little has been done to renovate the rooms here which are heavy, rusted and bolted just like they were when the jail was originally in use – the entire experience is rather Spartan.
Still, the hotel has some local flavor and features some interesting odds and ends and regularly-scheduled events from a monthly jam sessions to a local produce market.
