The stories behind Adelaide Gaol Darkside Tour
Share our passion for the Adelaide Gaol and indulge in some of the stories that will captivate and move you to wonder, why such a brutal facility existed.
And whilst your Guide will be wonderfully experienced, we encourage you to stump them with questions like:
- Who was South Australia’s first serial killer?
- How many hangings went very wrong?
- Did innocent men go to the gallows?
- And if you’re lucky, and your Guide is in a good mood, you might even hear a ghost story thrown in for good measure.
For Adelaide Gaol Tours, insist on the tour operator with greatest experience and the richest research to enhance your tour at the Adelaide Gaol.
Gaol Darkside Tour – Let us put the Faces To the Gaol
Help us trace the footsteps of a number of inmates who made that fateful journey to the gallows.
The Adelaide Gaol witnessed 45 executions during its history and some of her inmates had rather unusual stories to tell.
One common misconception (thanks to television) is the time taken from pronouncing sentence to the day of execution.
‘Death row’ in South Australia was experienced in most cases for no more than 28 days. Not long to make peace with your maker …
Our history guides have unparalleled experience with the Adelaide Gaol and its occupants over the years.
But don’t let them tell you the same stories they tell everyone – ask them about the following:
- How true is the rumour that one or two executions did not go according to plan?
- Just what happened at the Gaol whilst condemned prisoners awaited execution?
- Why did so many judges enforce the death penalty when the juries asked for mercy?
For those who suffered the extreme penalty of the law … let us share their stories …
