One of Brisbane’s best all-ages attractions, Boggo Road Gaol’s daily interactive History Tour takes you behind the famous red brick walls and invites you to relive the many mysteries of the gaol. Alongside a friendly tour guide, you’ll walk through the gatehouse, exercise yards, the ‘circle’ and one of the original cell blocks. Kids will find themselves thrust back in time as they ring the gaol bell and converse through the walls of the visitors’ centre.
The History Tour is an educational and fun approach to Brisbane’s penitentiary roots. Hear about inmates Houdini “Slim” Halliday, the last man hung, Ernest Austin, and the Whiskey Au Go Go bombers, James Finch and John Stuart, as well as the officers and even ‘Tripod the Gaol Cat’ on this fascinating public history tour.
