Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • Two hour walking tour
  • Informative commentary from your guide

Be incarcerated in Australia's longest continuously operating gaol! The Adelaide Gaol is one of the oldest remaining colonial public buildings in Adelaide and is the site of some of the South Australia's more interesting, grisly past.

Discover why Sister Mary MacKillop ended up on the gallows, the ghost of Governor Ashton whose body was dropped through a window and the spirit of South Australia's most sadistic killer still stalking his prey. Approximately 300,000 prisoners have passed through this fascinating building, and the first public hanging took place in November 1840. With 45 hangings and a burial site in Murderer's Row, it's no surprise more than 12 spirits haunt the 147 year old building!

Your evening includes a ghost tour with the opportunity to make contact through paranormal investigation tools – if you dare!
