Hidden beneath the grandeur of the historic Hobart Town Hall is a dark treasure known as ‘The Underground’. This basement space comprises a hallway and four sandstone rooms including the ex-constable’s room. At the height of its use, the rooms were connected by a tight staircase to the Town Hall Courtroom above. Go underground and explore this intimate cave-like space.
