This guided tour provides daytime access through the courts and tunnels to the chapel, cells and gallows of one of Australia’s most significant convict precincts.

Immerse yourself in an incredible place of Tasmanian criminal history, that's only a short walk or Red Decker bus ride from Hobart CBD (Old Hobart Gaol stop).

Winner of a 2014 TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award as the 6th top landmark in Australia - this is “ absolute must for Hobart visitors.”

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.

This fascinating history can still be discovered in the buildings that remain - a captivating insight into over 175 years of Hobart’s shadier past.

Tours run every day, all year round - check times when you 'confirm availability' as there are multiple tours throughout each day.
