  • Interesting info but "Way too much talking" and not enough time for photographers.. feel like you aren't aloud to explore at your own free will. And a lot of places left unexplored in the prison.. tour needs changing, but well worth seeing!
  • Tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. Fascinating to learn about the history of the gaol. Great value at $40- per family.
  • Fantasic tour with guide Darren. Highly informative and insightful knowledge about the gaols history. Easy walk with few steps.
  • Staff are friendly and informative. Well preserved court house.
  • Such a great tour! We were so impressed by the knowledge of our guide and the great work being done to restore the prison grounds. I highly recommend visiting Beechworth Gaol!!
