  • We attended the open day and the Gaol itself was great. We intend to go back on a quieter day for a self guided tour. However due to the weather it was ridiculously hot and the open day attracted a hu...  more »

  • Great tours, especially the night time tour. Best place to play paintball. Ever. Lastly, the Blackbird Cafe. They bake their own bread. My favourite bread. You can by a par baked loaf (which I do 2 loaves of every week) and finish off at home. Amazing. Just don't tell to many people, they bake all by hand so can run out. So good.
  • This is a fantastic attraction. I have been here a few times and done both the guided tour and the self guided audio tour. The audio is fantastic and was really creepy when playing it and a cell door near Martin Bryant’s cell slammed behind us. 💩 lol 😆. The guided tours are great also with varied stories being told to you by the different guides. I recommend this a must see attraction in the Hunter Valley.
  • Amazing but very harrowing to do the warden lead tour. Battlezone was a great experience here too. The kids loved it.
  • I did a tour here recently with my partner. We had Keith (an ex prison officer) as our guide. He was so informative and had alot of interesting stories and insight. Would highly recommend the Ex Warder tour to anyone! Very inexpensive as well and great experience. Would do it again at the drop of a hat!
  • Great day out for the family. Kids loved it. Bit pricey and the numbers were confusing to follow and listen whilst walking around. Definitely recommend it though!
