Visit the Old Dubbo Goal. Great for kids entertainment that adults will enjoy too.
See what life was like for convicts in a country gaol in the early years of settlement. Not for the faint hearted.
Dubbo Gaol is a state heritage listed building which operated from 1847 to 1966 and is on the main street of Dubbo. This regional gaol is a representative of powerful, surprising and dark moments in Australian prison history. Offers guided tours, night tours and theatrical experiences.
Fascinating place to visit - again be prepared to spend a couple of hours here. They do night tours during long weekends and school holidays. For the history buffs.
