What to Expect
Meet your Guide in front of the imposing green gatehouse doors of Boggo Road Gaol before entering the historic prison on your 90 minute walking tour.

As you make a gentle walk through the remaining parts of the gaol, you will stop to hear stories about the escapes from Number 2 Division. Hear how they did it, see where they did it. You will also learn about the conditions of the gaol and the horrific riots that lead up to the closure in 1989.

Visit the Gatehouse, Yards, and circle. History is everywhere! Your Guide will give you ample time to explore a Cell Block, ask additional questions and take photographs the picturesque surrounds.

After learning about the escapes, visit the gaol gift shop to take home something to remember your time in gaol. We have books, T-shirts, Gaol Keys, Postcards, Magnets and Posters available.

Hungry? Why not grab a bite to eat in the nearby Eco-Café or Ribbets restaurant.

We had a wonderful overview of the history of the gaol. As my father worked on construction at the gaol during various periods, he often told me about the amenities and it was great to eventually see them. Well worth the money.
