    Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site

    7 Reviews
    588m from downtown
    "Traveling to Australia, this stop is in Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, and the historic site of Port Arthur is one of Hobart’s most famous attractions. The historic site of the Prison Church, which was previously an ancient prison building, shows the local prison environment of more than half a century ago, and the justice system in Tasmania. Visitors can see the former courtroom here, or follow the dim stairs to the cell to see the cell's environment. I took a map to visit, the map marked a lot of places, now we see only a ruin, although the court, cells and other places, but also erected a sign, you can use your fantasy to imagine the original picture at that time."
    Highlights: The Prison Church Historic Site is an attraction located in the urban area of Hobart. This is an old prison building that shows the local prison environment more than half a century ago and the judicial system in Tasmania at that time. Visitors can see the former courthouse inside, and can also follow the narrow and dim stairs to the cell, visit the environment of the cell, and even see the hanging instruments at that time. However, this scenic spot is a bit gloomy. It is said that ghosts can sometimes be seen here at night, so it has attracted many curious people to find out.

    Battery Point

    24 Reviews
    1.4km from downtown
    "Its a suburb of the city of Hobart, Tasmania, named after the battery of guns established in 1818 as part of Hobart coastal defences."
    Highlights: Fortress Point is a highland terrain, 1.5 kilometers from the city, this area is a relatively long history of Hobart. Battery Point got its name from the Battery, built here in 1818, to protect the town of Hobart from threats from the sea, mainly for strategic reasons. During the heyday of whaling, Battery Point was a bustling area with a steady stream of sailors, and now the area around Battery Point is a secluded, upscale residential area where 19th-century Victorian and Georgian mansions can still be seen. There are many antique shops, art galleries and cafes that have been converted from old houses on the street. Wander around picturesque ArthurCircus, admire St George's Anglican Church on Cromwell St., or walk slowly on Napoleon St. to the harbour, where the mooring ropes sing in the wind and you can listen to the sound of ships colliding with each other.

    St. David's Cathedral

    3 Reviews
    418m from downtown
    "Touring Australia, this stop is coming to Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. Near Salamanca Square is an Anglican church, the main one in Hobart, first built in 1868, designed by a British designer, the interior of the painted glass windows is exquisite, worth a visit. It is opposite St. Davis Park, the church is free to visit during the day from Monday to Saturday, there is worship on Sunday, not outside, the church closes early, it is recommended that you go in the morning."
    Highlights: St David's Cathedral is located at the intersection of Macquarie Street and Murray Street. It was completed in 1874. This Gothic building is not only attractive for its quaint appearance. In the church, you can see the carvings on the walls. The eulogy on the stone, as well as the beautiful stained glass windows and the exquisite wooden altar screen, are worth stopping and savoring.

    St Joseph's Catholic Church

    1 Reviews
    415m from downtown
    "Traveling to Australia, this stop is to Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, and walk around the city. St. Joseph's Catholic Church is located at the intersection of Harrington Avenue and McQuarry Avenue, a simple and quaint Gothic building, the church is not large in size, and the stained glass windows and Italian-style murals inside are worth a look. I'm not a Catholic personally, so I didn't go in, and the opening hours are also prescribed, and it's best for those interested to go online in advance to see the schedule."
