Old Adelaide Gaol
Opened in 1841, the gaol closed its doors to prisoners in 1988 and now fills with curious visitors. Highlights include the grim hanging tower, cell blocks, grave area, displays of artifacts, plus the colonial architecture and gargoyles. Visitors can wander around as they please, or take one of the regular guided tours they offer. A souvenir shop sells postcards, mugs and trinkets. The gaol is found in the western Adelaide parklands near the River Torrens . Do check the website for prices.
