Yoga inside Brisbane's most notorious prison
About Boggo Road Gaol
For 109 years, Boggo Road was Brisbane's most notorious and dreaded prison. Located at Dutton Park, the prison housed murderers, and other violent criminals in harsh facilities.

Inmates included escapologist and jail-breaker Arthur "Slim" Halliday and the Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub fire-bombers James Richard Finch (The Birdman) and John Andrew Stuart. The prison closed in 1992 where it was later re-developed into an Eco-Sciences Precinct.
