“Always surprising!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

It's a great concept to have a trail of bricks which details convict stories along the sidewalk. The trail is even more significant given the how much convict labour was used at Campbell Town. Worth stopping and having a read, although be careful to look where you're walking.

Love the convict brick trail - wonderful ( also quite sad ) insight into the past. A fabulous concept - hope it continues.

“Very Interesting. Well Done.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is a great way to view this information about convicts and it also gets you walking up and down the Main Street. It's a winner of an idea.

“Extremely interesting”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Whilst holidaying in australia with a friend, we decided to take a tour of Tasmania. We had heard of the convict brick trail and the red bridge before we arrived. The bricks go all along the edge of the road through the town. Each brick contains the name of the "convict"and their crime. Some of the crimes were so minimal e.g. people stealing a loaf of bread, obviously because they were hungry, nothing more than that. Very interesting to spend time here and also to visit the red bridge.

“Memorial to convicts”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

A great idea, I paid $50 to have my convict ancestor's name and ship engraved on a brick. Sadly this project is no longer supported by the local authority, it needs funds.
