Very relaxed tour and knowledgeable guide. Good value, only $15 each for an interesting morning. Really enjoyed hearing the stories about the gaol.

We did a Saturday night tour - Darren was very informative. I'd love to sit down and chat with him for longer about the gaol. Looking forward to visiting in a few years to see what discoveries they've made!

The hosts were very informative and presented the information and stories perfectly. The tour allowed you to see all parts of the Gaol at your leisure whilst having the tour guide to explain each section and answer any questions.
