Old Dubbo Gaol reviews
Let’s face it, the zoo & the RFDS are the pick of Dubbo’s attractions, but if you have more time up your sleeve, add the gaol to your sightseeing. We even participated in the afternoon stage show. more »
The show at lunchtime was great. The 2 staff members who played the parts need to be commended. Great visitor involvement. Really interesting place. more »
If you like visiting old jails then this place is for you. Make sure you read all the signs as they have detailed description of the events happening there. They offer twilight and night tours. Both include a day entrance on the day or the day after. I didn't think that a night tour was something very special, but the tour guide was passionate and a good story teller. They also let you use emf readers to find ghosts (if that's something for you). But being in the jail when it's pitch black was pretty cool.
Loved it! The show was a highlight. Some of the stories you will read are quite haunting. I don't think i would survive one of the ghost tours that are offered!
