  • Sitting amongst modern-day developments, comforts & their associated trappings, cocooned by the pungent & unpleasant scent of technological advancement, is a preserved time-capsule - Hobart Convict Penitentiary. A glimpse of "Van Dieman's Land" as a penal colony, a destination of punishment, not pleasure, another world in a different time ..... Fascinating to "view", yet there is a feeling that permeates to the bone - an icy coldness of souls long past, torture, starvation, death, fear & pain - the harshness & cruelty of life's circumstance built into every nook & cranny.......

  • Good for people who are interested in History. Better call before to check the timings of the show.

  • Very good service, she knew her history. Very interesting place to see.

  • Went on the ghost tour and it was the best in hobart! I think the guides are mostly what make it such a great experience! You can tell they love their jobs as theyre super into making sure everyone has a great experience, super fun! Only let down was unfortunatly they've trained the ghosts too well and I didn't have any ghosts follow me home to haunt me permanently

  • Interesting place with great history. Worth as look.
