I’m so glad I wasn’t an inmate here (or anywhere else). Tour is eye opening. Tough conditions. Each display/cell is explained on an external card and you’re provided with a map on entry. We were there... more »
Been to the old Dubbo Gaol a few times. It’s great to learn the history of the place & getting to see the inside of the goal is really interesting more »
If you like visiting old jails then this place is for you. Make sure you read all the signs as they have detailed description of the events happening there. They offer twilight and night tours. Both include a day entrance on the day or the day after. I didn't think that a night tour was something very special, but the tour guide was passionate and a good story teller. They also let you use emf readers to find ghosts (if that's something for you). But being in the jail when it's pitch black was pretty cool.
Loved it! The show was a highlight. Some of the stories you will read are quite haunting. I don't think i would survive one of the ghost tours that are offered!
