Get 'locked up' these school holidays

Have you been naughty over the silly season? Then it is time to get locked up at Boggo Road Gaol!

The History of Boggo Road Gaol Tour is an interactive and fun experience for the whole family. The family-friendly 75-minute tour takes you and your family behind the walls of the heritage-listed Number Two Division and tells of the dramatic escapes, infamous inmates, lifers, riots, rooftop protests, and the daily lives of prisoners and the duties of officers.
