Old Dubbo Gaol: Chills And Thrills

16 Jul 2015

Old Dubbo Gaol


Are you a bit of a horror movie fan? Do you get a kick out of hearing the blood pumping in your ears during the dead of night? Are you tired of the same boring tours of old public facilities? Then you’re in luck, Old Dubbo Gaol has you covered! While you're here, stay at Discovery Parks - Dubbo. We're minutes away from the zoo, botanic garden, and old gaol. 


Old Dubbo Gaol Twilight Tours

This 1.5-hour Twilight Tour runs during the New South Wales school holidays and provides interactive fun for the whole family. For those looking for an even spookier experience, you can take an adults-only Beyond the Grave Tour, where you receive EMF readers to talk to the spirits of former prisoners. You will hear the darker stories, too gruesome to share during the day. 

Bookings are essential, so make sure to plan ahead.

Old Dubbo Gaol History

You will learn everything there is to know about nineteenth century prison life. Spend a moment in a solitary confinement cell, or see where the eight hangings at Dubbo Gaol took place. Once your spine is well and truly chilled, learn about the daring escape attempts and the creative ways (using rope, fire, and more) people managed to flee from the harsh conditions of the prison.
