Darlinghurst Gaol Tours

The old Darlinghurst gaol is one of Australia’s oldest and best preserved examples of colonial sandstone architecture, which over the last two centuries has transformed from a place of abject misery to one of Australia's premier arts institutes. According to legend, the building is haunted by the restless ghosts of some of the 76 people who were executed at the gaol’s gallows.

Join us for a tour of the gaol, shedding light on the fascinating history of the site and exposing the dark, hidden corners which aren’t usually open for public access.

Tours are offered three times each month, tickets are $15 + booking fee.

Tours depart from the Forbes Street Entrance, just next to the Hangout Cafe.
