Prisoner & Officer Tour

What is this tour about?

Hear both sides of the story and meet a former prisoner and a former officer and hear what it was like behind the bars of Boggo Road. An amazing insight into crime, justice and injustice inside this famous prison.

The MA15+ Prisoner & Officer Tour is a speciality tour taken by a real-life ex-prisoner and ex-officer of Boggo Road Gaol. Get the first-hand experience recaptured, learn the ways of the Boggo inmates and the Boggo wardens and immerse yourself in this piece of Queensland’s history.
