About Tench -Tours & Activities, The

Book Direct with the Owner at Tench -Tours & Activities, The with Accommodation Australia in Hobart, for all your holiday and travel needs.

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, as it was known by its inhabitants, was 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. An execution yard and gallows were added. This fascinating history can still be discovered in the buildings that remain - a captivating insight into over 175 years of Hobart's shadier past. Access to the site is by guided tour or events only. These include daytime tours, ghost tours, daily 'No Mercy' strolling theatre production (from the creators of the award-winning 'Louisa's Walk) and there is a weekly short musical production of 'Trial by Jury'. There is also a National Trust gift shop on site. Open every day except Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day (access by guided tour or event only, book online)....
