This gaol is great, and if it was the first one you ever visited you may rate it more highly. Don't compare it to Port Arthur....

What a great step back in time it was to visit the Old Wentworth Gaol (as spelt in those days).
At $8/adult for entry it was affordable, and very very interesting. You could really step back in time and imagine what it mustve been like for prisoners back in the 1880's

We went to Wentworth and Mildura on a WEA trip.(These are really good courses conducted by the Workers Education Assn in South Australia) They are 2 day courses supervised by history teachers.Not stuffy but interesting dialogue.They know so much about South Australia/Australian history.Wentworth is a small country town and is the landmark for where the Murray and Darling rivers meet.
There's a small lookout tower to see the blending of the 2 waterways.
If you're a bird lover there's a lock/lagoon and the amount of different birdlife is incredible.
The Wentworth Gaol has been there since the 1800's.Reasonable admission price$8-00.The exhibits are informative and the old buildings well kept.You really soak up the atmosphere of the times!
Another attribute for the town is the Art Gallery/Restaurant.The food is fresh and well presented.I haven't tasted this quality of food in a small town ever!!It is really worth visiting.The building is made from old stone and is decorated in welcoming tones etc
This area is really worth a visit and I highly recommend it:)

A 30 minute drive out of Mildura, but it is worth a visit jut to say that you've done it. Quite interesting.
