The Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site (The Tench)

6 Brisbane Street
Hobart
Tasmania
7000

61 03 6231 0911

One of Australia's most significant convict precincts is only a short walk or Red Decker bus ride from Hobart CBD ('Old Hobart Gaol' stop).

'The Tench' was the convict barracks for Hobart Town, originally spanning over two acres. Following the end of convict transportation, the site became the Hobart Gaol for more than 100 years.

The Penitentiary Chapel was designed in the 1830's to serve the growing male population (50,000 convicts passed through). Sections were later converted into Supreme Courts which are linked by tunnels to cells, an execution yard and the gallows. Today this historic chapel site provides a fascinating insight into 175 years of crime and punishment.

Access by guided tour or events only - bookings either essential or strongly recommended (depending on tour). Please check availabilities on our website.
