Experience one of Australia’s most notorious prisons with a Boggo Road Gaol Tour. There are a selection of three intriguing tours to choose from including the history of Boggo Road Gaol, the ex-inmate/ex-officer tour and the very scary Boggo Road Gaol Ghost Tour.
During the tour you will discover how the gaol was synonymous with rooftop riots, hunger strikes, protests and escapes. Boggo incarcerated many infamous inmates, including the Whiskey Au Go Go firebombers – John Andrew Stuart and James Richard Finch, as well as the ‘Houdini of Boggo Road’, Slim Halliday – who escaped twice.
The gaol is located at Annerley Road, Dutton Park and is open 7 days a week. 90 minute tours run twice daily. For more information regarding the tours visit Boggo Road Gaol
