Hobart Convict Penitentiary

Hobart Convict Penitentiary

Hobart Convict Penitentiary in the early 1830’s, the chapel of the Van Diemen’s Land Prisoners’ Barracks Penitentiary was far from a serene and holy experience.

The Penitentiary is home to incredible stories of crime and punishment in Van Diemen’s Land, with courtrooms and underground tunnels, solitary cells, chapel, and still-working gallows of this fascinating historic convict site, which later became Hobart’s old Gaol and Supreme Court.
