Boggo Road Gaol
Boggo Road Gaol – its very name conjures images of rooftop riots, hunger strikes, protests and escapes, tough crims, and tougher warders.
Between 1883 and 2002 more than 500,000 people passed through the prison gates as staff, visitors and inmates.
Between 1883 & 1913 it was a place of execution. “Boggo” held many infamous inmates including the Whiskey Au Go Go firebombers and the “Houdini of Boggo Road”, Slim Halliday.
Located in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Boggo Road was one of the most notorious prisons of the Twentieth century. But most of its secrets are yet to be revealed.
The former prison has reopened as a cultural-heritage tourist attraction.
Through Historical Tours, Historical Re-enactments & Immersions, Educational Experiences, Functions & Events – complimented by the presence of the Prison Players – the drama and stories of human beings, their failings and their achievements, within the walls of Boggo Road Gaol, are brought to life.
