Found it very interesting. Loved how open it was, to explore so much of it. Fair bit of information around. Lots of history. Was a great stop. Wasnt easy to find for us Gladstone didnt seem to have much signage for it. But the gps did good. Well worth it 👍

We have stayed at Gladstone a few times and for the price it was awesome and to the people who do not think it is awesome just remember how the prisoners had it back in those days sleeping in a cold cell on a cold night , sleeping at Gladstone Gaol gives one an idea of how it was there... More

We stayed as a part of a group and slept one night in the cells. We didn't find the place very interesting and the bedding left a lot to be desired. The sheets were very thin as were the mattresses. Overall a very uncomfortable night was had. The bathroom is a unisex shared facility accessed from outside of the accommodation.... More

We did the ghost tour with Deb and Rose and it was AMAZING - spooky, informative and hilarious. The gaol is actually much bigger than I'd thought and the history is fascinating.... More

Decided to go here with a group of friends recently. It is very interesting and we spent a couple of hours here. Visitors are able to stay overnight in the prison at reasonable rates, just be aware it is basic accommodation. Not sure if the Goal is haunted but that is what the staff would like you to think. Some... More

Just spent my first night in prison, and it was very interesting. The cells are VERY basic, but at $25 with linen included it's a bargain! I was with quite a large group and we had a lot of fun. Toilets and showers are unisex, which was a little uncomfortable for some of us. The communal kitchen has everything you... More
