Escapes Tour

What is this tour about?

The Escapes Tour – How did they do it? This new tour of Boggo Road Gaol examines in detail some of the dramatic escapes from No 2 Division. We visit the actual places where desperate men implemented their plans and went over the wall.

Hear about the characters, their backgrounds and the equipment they used. The ESCAPES tour includes the two gaol-breaks by “Slim” Halliday – the Houdini of Boggo Road – in his time Australia’s greatest escapologist! The Tour is based on the book BOGGO ROAD GAOL ESCAPES Volume 1 written by Jack Sim, Director of the historic prison.
