Overview

Experience the grizzly life of prisoners at the Old Adelaide Gaol. There’s lots of activities for kids to do and cells to explore to learn about the harsh conditions of South Australia’s first prison, which operated from 1841 to 1988. You can do a self guided tour, a Guided History Tour or even a night time Ghost Tour (if your over 16). Try on some leg-irons and handcuffs, visit the museum and explore the archaeological site to learn about Adelaide’s early settlers and prisoners.
