    The entrance fee with the audio guide is 10 dollars. Three storey building with good interactive displays.

    Definitely drop by the gift shop first to pickup the Explorer quest for the kids. Turns the visit into something more interactive for everyone.

    Don't miss the dessicated rats which were trapped in the floorboards, in room 1. Or the replica hammocks you can lie on, on the top level

    A must! Very interesting and educational. Free audio guide with the A$10 entry fee, so worth it. Don't miss the 1:45 pm guided tour. Try the hammocks.

    Australia's first detention centre? That tiny building over there once housed 600 convicts. We hear the line for the toilets was very long. Read more
