Old Dubbo Gaol

The Old Dubbo Gaol was a courthouse lockup since 1847, and was proclaimed an official Gaol in 1859. The Old Dubbo Gaol closed operations as a penal institution in 1966 and officially re-opened as a tourist attraction in 1974. It is now completely restored and home to a large display of animatronics and holographic displays which provide a realistic and fascinating insight into a bygone era of barbaric prison life.

School group tours can be tailored to suit age groups as well as specific syllabus requirements.
