    The walls of No.2 Division, Boggo Road Gaol, Brisbane were supposedly escape-proof, but some inmates thought otherwise. Head on this thrilling tour (based on the book Boggo Road Gaol Escapes Volume One by Jack Sim) and you’ll learn more about the jail-breakers and their bold escapes. 

    Your knowledgeable guide will show you around this historic, heritage-listed prison, taking in the yard, the gatehouse, the Circle and D Wing cell block (where you’ll see the cell of infamous escapologist “Slim” Halliday ‘the Houdini of Boggo Road’). 

    Learn how Halliday staged not one, but two successful escapes from this maximum-security prison and follow his escape route. You’ll also find out more about some of the other criminals who were locked up here over the years… as well as their efforts to escape.
