Survivors of Tasmania's Port Arthur massacre made an emotional pilgrimage to the city yesterday, strolling among stone ruins which a year ago echoed to the crack of deadly gunfire.

They wandered around the old Port Arthur penal colony, where 35 people were killed on 28 April last year in Australia's worst mass murder in modern times.

After a public remembrance service at Port Arthur, the 100 or so survivors and relatives of the victims roamed the site, reflecting on last year's tragedy. Reuters - Port Arthur
