Glebe: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Tench - Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site - The

One of Australia's most significant convict precincts is only a short walk or Red Decker bus ride from Hobart's CBD (at the '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 which remain - a captivating insight into over 175 years of Hobart's shadier past.
Access to all areas is by guided tour and events only, book via our online booking system.
National Trust Shop access available at all times during opening hours.

Warm Design

Where does design end and art begin? What happens when utility is not the primary focus of design? Warm Design, co-curated by Phoebe Adams and Sara Lindsay, is a curatorial investigation that aims to develop a framework for design practice concerned with the exploration of what it is to be human. Participating artists/designers from a range of design disciplines including jewellery, ceramics, object and furniture design were asked how design is warmed by the presence of emotional content, through ways of making, materiality and the expression socio-political concerns.

The Popular Mechanicals

Shakespeare's greatest clowns-the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night's Dream- take centrestage in this wild reimagining of what might have happened off-stage during the Bard's most loved comedy.
Perhaps the most famous group of amateur thespians of all time, the cast of the play-within-aplay Pyramus and Thisbe, bumble their way through a hysterically funny mix of verse, song and dance.
Using snippets of the existing text of A Midsummer Night's Dream, the play exalts in its own roughness, extravagance of expression and frequent obscenity- in the nicest possible way. Clowning, vaudeville, slapstick, stand-up comedy and bad puppetry come together with both witty badinage and fart jokes to create an anarchic and thrillingly unhinged carnival.
First directed by Geoffrey Rush in 1987, The Popular Mechanicals holds a special place in the Australian comedic canon. Directed by former Sydney Theatre Company Resident Director, Sarah Giles, it's a perfect romp that promises to lift the roof.
