This tour is very easy to access, even with public transportation. Dutton Street RW Station is about a 3min walk away, & it's well lit.
Our guide provided lots of fascinating history, information on ghost sightings and the prison routine. She answered all our questions. I'll never forget the BBQ plate and poor old Tripod. There was plenty of 'free time' to creep around and have a close look and take photographs. We were given a very informative book on Boggo Road Gaol with lots of photographs.
