A visit to Port Arthur isn't complete without a visit to the Penitentiary Chapel, and a trip to Penitentiary Chapel isn't complete without a visit to Port Arthur. You need to see them both to understand the historical context.
The National Trust are doing a great job in preserving this historic site, so this has to be a "must see" for any trip to Tasmania. Become immersed in the genius of the versatile architecture that adapted to the changing needs of the community, and the history that connected to Briton, Canada, United States, and New Zealand, to Australia.
I will definitely take a repeat visit next time in Hobart to follow how the story unfolds.
