0 Best Hobart Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Hobart is the Capital city of Tasmania, the island State. It sits on the Derwent River, and is shadowed by Mt Wellington. Second only in age to Sydney, Hobart also has a convict history with Port Arthur Historic Site being one of the main attractions in the area covering 40 acres of ruins and grounds. Explore the cemetery and the prisons with specially designed solitary cells to isolate convicts as cruel and lonely punishment.

Another convict site is within the city, the Cascades Female Factory Prison, where thousands of women and children were imprisoned. This is Australia’s biggest female prison of the convict era, and many convicts did not survive their stay here.

For a different perspective on convicts, night tours are available at Port Arthur, including a ghost tour. If you ever are going to see spirits from the past, a place like this haunting site is sure to deliver.
