Old Dubbo Gaol is worth visiting. Reasonably priced at around $30 for a family of four.Take your NRMA card to secure a discount. Our kids loved it. We took a couple of hours to walk around. They give you a good guide booklet which takes you around the gaol, highlighting some quick easy to read facts and some holograms etc to describe how prisoners lived. Solitary confinement with no light or sound was scary but fun for the kids, the description of escape attempts and jailing and hanging of people who really sound like they had no chance to defend themselves were interesting.Thank goodness there is no capital punishment in Australia anymore!
The tour was funny and informative. Suggest it is best for kids between 6 and 14. Before that not a lot of interest and after that age the teenagers just stand in a corner texting!
