      • Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site: Discover Hobart's haunting history as a prison city at this 1829 chapel, a place of worship as well as a poorly lit, airless add-on to overflowing barracks.
      • The Cascades Factory: Delve deeper into Australia's penal past at this notorious workhouse prison for women, built when Tasmania was called Van Dieman's Land. 
      • Historic districts: Salamanca Place (and its market), Battery Point, and other areas are still dominated by the distinctive architecture of beautiful cottages and mansions from the Georgian and Victorian eras, many built by convicts. 
      • More to see and do: Admire the colonial architecture of Theatre Royal; see the Hobart Cenotaph, the somber monument to local war dead; visit Australia's first legal casino, or visit Parliament and St. David's Cathedral, both the work of architect John Archer.
      • Easy and inexpensive: Your confirmation email includes a one-time download link for an audio tour and corresponding numbered map. Just put on your headphones and hit play – each attraction is a separate track, so you set the pace.

      Meeting point

      Please make your way to Salamanca Square, Battery Point TAS 7004. Your audio tour begins here. Consult the downloadable map and listen to the audio for more detail.

      Helpful hints

      As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. Dress for the weather with flat, comfortable shoes for walking and don’t forget your sunscreen and bottled water.

      Be sure to bring spending money; venue entrance fees are not included.

      Getting around

      This 5.5-mile audio city tour covers fairly flat to moderately inclined terrain, with paved/unpaved pathways and occasional steps. You can skip a particular tour stop very easily if you wish.
