Come 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, those that were sentenced for their crimes in the courtrooms, the lives that were ended at the Gallows, and the spirits that remain haunting every wall.

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, and an execution yard, gallows added to the site.

Come & join the 90 min tour as we tell you tales of the convicts executed on-site & the ghost stories & experiences from previous guests.

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