Take a tour of this interesting heritage listed Gaol. Our Tour guide was fantastic, and also a wealth of knowledge. Well worth the money to experience first hand an inside look at the Gaol.

The one hour walking tour of the gaol was extremely interesting, the guide most knowledgeable about the general history of the gaol and had a number of interesting anecdotes on the prison's most famous (infamous) guests...well worth the cost of admission.

Went there today. Guide knew her stuff but overall nothing special. If you do visit probably better to just take yourself around as plenty of information to read for yourself. Not really missing out if you don't make it to this one.
