  • Oldest gaol in original condition. Fascinating experience and better than you would expect from the outside. Well worth the visit and has a 'eye spy' hunt for children.
  • Great cheap little peek into history. Doesn't take too long either. Easy stop off while in Richmond to see Australia's oldest bridge.
  • Cheap attraction with interesting and informative notes on every room and item within the complex. Great insight into how a more typical prison in the day would have run compared to Port Arthur.
  • Loved it. So original like everything was still there except the prisoners. Stories about the prison and convicts. Artifacts.
  • Good historic site. Show how hard life was for prisoners in old times.
