Night time tour in Busselton's old gaol

Feel the chills and get the goose-bumps on a special night tour of the cell block at the ArtGeo Cultural Complex.

ArtGeo coordinator John Reid said you could feel the history between the walls in the gaol cells built in 1861 housed in the heritage-listed Courthouse.

"Discover what life was like for prisoners locked behind heavy Jarrah doors in the cold, small and dark cells," he said.

"You will also hear about some colourful characters and daring escapes."

Tours run on at 6.30pm, 7pm or 7.30pm on Thursday July 18, and will be followed by a free sausage sizzle.

Lockup your parents for $10 each, a maximum of two children will have free entry and additional children will be $5 each.

Limited cells are available and bookings are essential, please phone 9751 4651 or pop into the ArtGeo Gallery in the Queen Street Cultural Precinct from 10am to 4pm daily.
