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.

Launceston to Hobart Yacht Race


One of Australia's newest and fastest growing ocean races, the Launceston to Hobart Yacht Race sees yachts journey 280 nautical miles Launceston down to Hobart via the east coast of Tasmania.
The race starts on Monday, 27 December and the fleet will set sail from Inspection Head wharf at Beauty Point, a few miles upstream from Low Head.
Spectators can see the yachts from the foreshores of the Tamar downstream, while many pleasure craft follow the fleet to Low Head.
From there the course will take the yachts through notorious Banks Strait between the north-east tip of Tasmania and the Furneaux Islands before heading to Hobart via the Mercury Passage between Maria Island and the Tasmanian mainland.
As they sail down the east coast the L2H boats probably will sail in company with those racing from Sydney and Melbourne to the joint finish of all three races in Hobart.

Anzac Day Dawn Service - Hobart


A Dawn Service will be held at the Hobart Cenotaph.
ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918).
As a result, one day in the year has involved the whole of Australia in solemn ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. That day is ANZAC Day - 25 April.
A Dawn Service will be held at the Cenotaph to remember the ANZACs and other War Veterans who fought for Australia.

The Popular Mechanicals


THE THEATRE ROYAL PRESENTS A STATE THEATRE COMPANY SOUTH AUSTRALIA PRODUCTION.
BY KEITH ROBINSON, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE AND TONY TAYLOR, ORIGINAL DIRECTION BY GEOFFREY RUSH.
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.

The Merchant Of Venice


THE THEATRE ROYAL PRESENTS A BELL SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION.
By William Shakespeare.
Money makes the world go around. Portia has it. Bassanio wants it. Shylock lends it. Antonio owes the value of it. Love also plays a part. Portia offers it. Bassanio wants it. And Antonio may lose a pound of flesh for it.
This uncompromising and dark production explores the tense relationship and prejudices between those that have, and those that don't. Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and justice.
Director: Anne-Louise Sarks
Set and Costume Designer: Michael Hankin
Lighting Designer: Paul Jackson
Composer and Sound Designer: Max Lyandvert
Voice Coach: Jess Chambers
Dramaturg: Benedict Hardie
With: Catherine Davies, Damien Strouthos, Eugene Gilfedder, Fayssal Bazzi, Jacob Warner, Jessica Tovey, Jo Turner, Mitchell Butel, Shiv Palekar.
