Steeped in 119 years of colourful history and with so many nooks and crannies to explore, the History Tour at Brisbane's infamous Boggo Road Gaol is a fantastic day out for the entire family over the spring holidays, and best of all, it's affordable. During the school holidays, guests can also enjoy the Gallows Exhibition exploring punishment and capital punishment at Boggo Road.
The History Tour runs at 11am daily during the school holidays and lasts approximately 90 minutes, taking you through jail precincts such as the heritage-listed No. 2 Division, which is still as it was when the jail was closed back in July 1992.
