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.

Re-collection is an exhibition of works by Sue Henderson, Penny Mason, Anne Morrison and Susan Pickering. It follows on from an exhibition at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) in 2015 entitled 'Re-Imagined'. Both exhibitions feature works made in response to items in the QVMAG archives. The artists made several visits behind the scenes to view the collection, where they found an accumulation of a great variety of objects: on shelves, in cabinets, drawers, boxes and racks. As well as being attracted to particular items, their responses reflect an interest in the very nature of collecting: its layered histories, and the conflict between conservation and decay, between restoration and allowing the history, as shown in the deterioration of surfaces, to remain visible.
