Penitentiary With a Rep

Listen, take it from us: Back in the day, you most definitely did NOT want to go to Boggo Road Gaol. Some of Australia's nastiest criminals ended up in this long-serving prison (gaol)--and more than a few of them were executed here. Among a full roster of infamous inmates was Arthur "Slim" Halliday, who somehow managed to escape Boggo Road Gaol not once but twice. Now, however, visiting the grim interior of the prison--which shut down operations in 1989--makes one of Brisbane's most fascinating sightseeing outings, whether you're getting the inside scoop on day-to-day life for inmates and guards or you're dipping into Boggo Road Gaol's fertile supernatural depths on the "Ghosts & Gallows" tour.
