This is a "must - do" when staying in Richmond. Give yourself at least an hour when visiting. The solitary cells gave me the creeps.

This gaol is full of history and feelings of the people who spent time in it. We loved the way that they haven't destroyed the history and had a lot of information and displays for you to see.

Loved this. Glad to see that places like this are protected. Quite a lot of information was available.

This place holds amazing history. The buildings are still standing and I swear you can smell lingering odours from back when the inmates stayed there

It would have been a very cold and unsanitary place to be. The isolations cells are eery

Not a lot to pay to look around the oldest gaol in Australia. It's not a big site but is well preserved.
