  • So glad we got to visit here my family and I really enjoyed the day, We were really happy with the information of the history given to us, lovely people around to talk to.
  • $5 entry. Excellent exhibits throughout the gaol in cells and offices. Volunteer (Peter) was wonderfully knowledgeable about the building and the whole barracks history. Fascinating to walk among the historic barrack buildings (still operating) afterwards.
