    Visit Boggo Road Gaol on a guided tour through Number 2 Division.
    Boggo Road Jail was Australia’s most notorious prison. Over 119 years of operation, thousands of men and women served time behind its red-brick walls.

    Forty-two prisoners were executed by hanging – the last in 1913. His ghost and many more were said to haunt the prison.

    In the 1980s Boggo Road was the scene of dramatic escapes, riots, hunger-strikes and roof-top protests which led to the prisons official closure 25 years ago in July 1992.


    Boggo Road Jail is a “must do” Brisbane experience!

    Admission to the Gaol is via a guided tour or via hiring the Gaol.
