  • So as you drive up the main drag of Richmond, there's a sign which tells you it's like 150m walk down to the Goal. It's right next to the Police station and in the Center of town so you won't miss it....  more »
  • Reliving the hardships the convicts endured here made this a special place. Not expensive for entry fee. The self guided tour was very interesting and worthwhile. Plenty of shaded parking.  more »
  • Sobering exploration of Australia's convict past. Self-guided tour through the partially restored gaol with explanations of most features. Solitary confinement cells are worthy of reflection.  more »

  • 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
