What stories will the lost souls whisper to you in the night?

The Hobart Convict Penitentiary was the dark heart of the convict system in Tasmania.

Built as convict prisoners' barracks for Hobart Town it originally spanned over two acres and some 40,000 male convicts passed through the complex. Following the cessation of convict transportation, the site became Hobart Goal that saw sections of the chapel converted into two courts connected by tunnels, with an execution yard and gallows added to the site.

Some tour the Hobart Convict Penitentiary after dark and hear the stories of those that experienced Heaven and Hell in the Chapel and the solitary cells beneath from the 1830's; those that were sentenced for their crimes in the courtrooms for over one hundred years until the 1980's; the lives that were ended at the Gallows, and the spirits that remain haunting every wall today.

Pick up your lantern and join the 90-minute tour as we tell you tales of the convicts and prisoners who have walked this space for nearly two hundred years.
