Paranormal Investigation at the Hobart Convict Penitentiary
- Duration: 120 Minutes
- Location: Hobart, Tasmania
Join us at the Hobart Convict Penitentiary, one of Australia's most significant convict sites, for a 2 hour Paranormal Investigation with a passionate team of investigators and psychic/medium. All proceeds are given to the Hobart Convict Penitentiary.
Investigation starts at 7.45 sharp until approximately 9.45pm and are held once a month on a Saturday evening.
The Hobart Paranormal Group are a small investigative group consisting of Aneeta (Psychic Medium), Stacey (Paranormal Investigator) and Sarah (Paranormal Investigator).
What is now known as Hobart Convict Penitentiary, began as the convict prisoners' barracks for Hobart Town. It originally spanned over two acres and some 50,000 male convicts passed through the complex. Following the cessation of convict transportation, the site became Hobart Gaol for more than 100 years. Sections of the chapel were converted into two Supreme Courts connected by tunnels to the gaol and an execution yard and gallows were added. This fascinating history can still be discovered in the buildings which remain - a captivating insight into over 175 years of Hobart’s shadier past.
