As Halloween approaches we went off to explore parts of Hobart that are renowned for being a little bit spooky. The rule of thumb seems to be that if you find the history, the haunted soon follows.
You have probably walked past the Hobart Convict Penitentiary, located at a busy Hobart intersection, at least a handful of times, but may not have even realised it was there. The original part of the building pre-dates even Port Arthur and has a colourful history to say the least.
Built in 1820, this place is filled to the brim with history (and hauntings) and offers tours both by daylight and at night for their highly recommended ghost tours.
Yes, the Hello Hobart team took on a ghost tour.
