About Boggo Road Gaol Historical Tours

Stage to many alleged haunting happenings, Boggo Road Gaol is a heritage-listed prison that operated for over a century - from 1883 to 1989. The site is the only surviving intact gaol in Queensland and is currently closed to the public, save for the guided historical tours that take visitors through the most notorious parts of the building. The prison saw such infamous figures as “Houdini of Boggo Road” escapologist, jail-breaker “Slim” Halliday and the Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub fire-bombers James Richard Finch and John Andrew Stuart. Hundreds of other nameless women and men served their times as inmates, many of whom saw the end of their life there. 42 prisoners were hanged on-site, with the last execution happening in 1913. The gaol was a witness to many other historical scenes, including dramatic escapes, riots, hunger-strikes and roof-top protests.
