  • Well worth a visit. The gaol buildings give life to the misery and suffering of the people that were once incarcerated within. I also went on a cold, windy and rainy day which made the experience all the more realistic. The exhibits are a bit sparse, but there are still enough to give you a feeling of what it would have been like back then. Entry fee for an adult was $9, I'd say it was worth it, because I enjoy learning about history.
  • Well presented attraction. You need to read all the information provided to gain the most out of your visit.
  • Great place top visit with kids. If they're naughty you can just lock the gates and leave them behind.
  • Really interesting but quite small, won't take long to check out.
  • Well worth a visit
