Journey to Tasmania's Past: From Oceana B&B to Convict History

Nestled amidst the serene landscape of Tasmania, a stone's throw away from the heart of Hobart, lies Oceana B&B, a tranquil retreat that mirrors the rich tapestry of Tasmania's history and natural beauty. As the cool Tasmanian breeze whispers tales of the past, our guests find themselves perfectly poised to embark on a journey through time at the Hobart Penitentiary, now home to the enthralling 'Unshackled' experience, curated by the National Trust.

'Unshackled' is not just a tour; it's an invitation to step back into a pivotal era in Tasmania's history, exploring the depths of the Hobart Convict Penitentiary.

This immersive experience brings to life the stories of over 55,000 men whose lives were intertwined with this historic site, offering a unique glimpse into their world through a blend of digital history, dynamic presentations, and guided explorations​ (National Trust).

At Oceana B&B, we cherish the stories that have shaped Tasmania, believing that understanding our past enriches our present. As such, we encourage our guests to explore 'Unshackled' as part of their Tasmanian adventure. Located just a brief journey from our doorstep, the Penitentiary stands as a testament to the resilience and spirit of those who came before us, offering a poignant reminder of our shared heritage​ (National Trust)​.

Our commitment at Oceana B&B is to offer a haven of rest and rejuvenation, a place where the hustle of life slows to the pace of nature. After a day spent wandering through the echoes of history at the Penitentiary, we invite our guests to return to the comfort of Oceana B&B, where the tales of yesteryears blend seamlessly with the calm of today.


We believe in the beauty of discovery, in the stories untold and the histories unveiled. 'Unshackled' at the Hobart Penitentiary is more than an attraction; it's a journey into the heart of Tasmania's convict past, a journey that we at Oceana B&B are proud to recommend to those who wish to explore, learn, and connect with the essence of this enchanting island​ (The National Tribune)​.
