Guided Tours

Our popular weekend guided tours operate every Saturday and Sunday morning, generally from October until the end of April. We also run group tours, including school tours by arrangement.

Our tour outlines the history and use of the Gaol over its 110 years, incorporating stories of its detainees and employees and other people associated with the prison and justice system. These tours are subject to booking numbers and guide availability.
