Thebarton, SA

This extremely haunted old Gaol was home to some of Adelaide’s most hardened criminals, this prison housed inmates such as John Balaban, who was responsible for one of Adelaide's most notorious crimes.

Balaban went on a killing spree at the former Sunshine Cafe on Gouger Street (also known as Cane Corner). Victims included his wife, and his stepson Phillip, who was only 6 years old. When asked why did you kill the child, his response was along the lines of, "Well, I didn’t want the child growing up without a Mother." This madman was hung in the Gaol on August 26, 1953.

Legend has it his ghost is still seen by guests and tour guides in the Gaol today... We take you to his grave where the only marks that identify his remains are his initials on the wall "JB".

Listen to the tales of the 43 other condemned men who saw out their final days within the walls of the Adelaide Gaol. We take you to the gallows to see the hangman's noose and a trapdoor that sealed the fate of these condemned individuals.

We tell you the sad story of Elizabeth Woodcock, who was convicted of poisoning her husband under tragic circumstances and paid the ultimate price by being sentenced to death. Elizabeth was the first and only woman in South Australia to be lawfully executed, and this all took place within the cold stone walls of the Adelaide Gaol.

See where the prisoners had their daily meals, visit the exercise yard where violence often erupted, and investigate the condemned man's cell and retrace their final moments before execution. Find out and investigate the areas where prison guards refused to do night duty, and hear the tales of footsteps being heard and keys being rattled from the staff and volunteers as their stories are re-lived.

Our tour guides show you footage of investigations conducted within the Gaol, and share the evidence of the afterlife that has been captured! Ghost Crime Tours will provide you with all the equipment you will need including EMF detectors and voice recording equipment and we will make sure that there are experienced investigators there to guide you along this unique experience.
