What people are saying:

When we came in on Friday, September 13th, the young lady at the front desk should have been more friendly and greeted me. Nevertheless, since I have been here before and am impressed, I have to do it again. You will get an audio guide about this prison here. The stories about the prison are amazing. This prison is very old, but there are some newer parts, where Ivan Milat was held. This is a creepy place, you have to make sure that you will never be locked here! Touring the new and old parts of the prison helps to understand the changes in the prison system.

    Night tour at Maitland Gaol

    Really enjoyed the tour, it was interesting. Due to Covid there were some restrictions but I am sure when these are lifted it will be an excellent experience.
