We come across this by accident thinking it was part of the museum, $12 for a family ticket which was reasonable considering it is not govt subsidised. there is plenty to read and good life like figure used in cells, it is not a big goal but there is a lot of history. There is a tower there above the... 更多
Entry price to the Old Gaol is very minimal: $5 per adult, $2.50 concession. It's staffed by volunteers, who were friendly and happy to chat. They suggested most people spend about 30 minutes going through the museum, but we took our time and were here for an hour and a half. During the winter the place is very quiet, although... 更多
This was amazing and made you feel that the pioneers, prisoners, if they survived is why Australia is great now. They must have been tough, this wtruly captured the life of a prisoner and sometimes shocking revelation of what it was like, back in the day!
$5 entry was a fair price to see a very historical building. It has been restored so that everyone can visit and learn about that era and the prisoners. Quite a large gaol. Very good WW1 exhibit. The DVDs in this exhibit was very good. I would highly recommend this.
Usual tourist hotspot and great history within the walls. Great for scaring young children should they be there (School holidays and unsupervised children are the perfect storm). Be mindful on the entry to the female goal. The first floor plank leading to the area creaks and makes a super creepy noise. Also there are rumoured to be ghosts in the... 更多
A great attraction to visit with lots of information as you walk through. The cells were mostly set up as they were back in the day & in some areas it was very eerie.
Definitely worth a visit if in the area - its full of history and the Gaol has been restored to its original format. Its also definitely haunted!!
A great place housing cells as well as some very interesting stories from the prison days. It is suitable for all ages and there is a large yard out back where prisoners once used for recreation purposes. The whole place is a little misleading as it turned out to be a lot bigger than it looks! A great and very... 更多
Took our 6 & 8 year old who were intrigued by the broken bottle walls. They were interested, but zoomed through pretty quickly not interested in taking the time to read or understand what they were seeing. It is an interesting look back in history.
