Traveling to Australia, this stop came to Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. The historic site of Port Arthur is one of the most famous attractions in Hobart. The historical site of the prison church, here was an old prison building, showing the local prison environment more than half a century ago, as well as the judicial system in Tasmania. Visitors can see the former courtroom here, and they can also follow the dark stairs to the cell and take a look at the environment of the cell. I took a visit map, which marked many places, and now we saw only a piece of ruins. Although the courts, prison cells and other places also put up a sign, you can use your own fantasy Think about the original picture at that time.
The historical preservation building is basically the wreck left here, but it did not deliberately renovate and rebuild, but showed the relatively most authentic side.
The main building at the back is also equipped with a museum. The cell building inside reveals a room with a faint light or even no light, telling the past of the prisoners in exile.
It's worth browsing. It feels a bit heavy to touch the history and trace the past. After buying some souvenirs at the beach restaurant and drinking a glass of rose wine, I feel better. The museum and the small island where juvenile offenders are held are also worth visiting.
Penitentiary Chapel Historic Site is located at the corner of Brisbane Street and Campbell Street in Hobart, at the corner of Brisbane St / Campbell St. In the early 1830s, based on the Irish colonial architect and civil engineer John Lee Archer Design and build. This is an old Georgian Renaissance architectural style prison building. It is one of the most important prison areas in Australia. It was also called "The Tench" at the time and is now managed by the National Trust. Residents nearby know that this was once a prison barracks in Hobart. It originally occupies more than two acres, and about 50,000 male prisoners have stayed here. After the transportation of prisoners was stopped, it became Hobart prison for more than 100 years. The site shows the former prison environment and the judicial system in Tasmania at that time. Visitors can see the former court, or follow the narrow and dark stairs to the cell, visit the cell environment, and even see the gallows at the time. But this attraction is a bit gloomy. It is said that ghosts can sometimes be seen here at night, so it attracts many curious people to find out. In fact, don’t talk about this kind of place at night, it’s very gloomy during the day, and there is a "ghost tour" to visit at night, I am not interested!

The life of the criminal has been restored, and you can feel the story in the wall. Walking through churches, courtrooms, and gallows all touches people's hearts, and even moves people. It is very real and historically significant. I really like the message from this trip.
