Join us as we investigate the countries only 19th century Military Gaol at Anglesea Barracks Army Base located in the heart of Hobart.

Anglesea Barracks is the oldest military barracks still in use in Australia and is one of Australia’s most significant historical military precincts. The Gaol was established to accommodate wayward soldiers and was built in 1847. This imposing building contains the gaolers quarters and 12 single cells.

The goal was built when military numbers were at their peak in colonial Tasmania and preceded the “Separate Prison” built at Port Arthur in 1850. After the departure of the last British regiment in 1870 the Gaol had a number of functions including its use as a girls reformatory from 1881 to 1905 and is now the home of the Army Museum of Tasmania.

We will explore this 175 year old building after dark equipped with some of the latest paranormal equipment for your two-hour experience to find out who may be still haunting these prison walls.

As the lights go out, the cell doors locked, we will walk the hallways and immerse ourselves into the unknown and discover the true “hauntings” and “secrets” this prison has to tell.

Access to this venue in the darkest hours is not otherwise permitted, so do you dare to join us!
