Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site
This site offers a fascinating and gruesome insight into Tasmania’s past. Originally intended as a chapel for convicts, this building became a place of horror with the addition of underground solitary confinement cells, an execution yard and gallows. If you are game, ghost tours – by flickering lamplight – are available most evenings!
