Unlock the history of the Albany Convict Gaol

Escape to the Albany Convict Gaol and unlock the history of the convict past.

Visit the Convict Kids Corner and grab your fact finder and explore the Gaol to find the answers.  Dress up as a convict and involve the whole family with Warden uniforms and Victorian costumes available. Take a photo behind bars, and grab your convict colouring pages and puzzles to complete.

The Gaol was built in 1852 and consisted of men's cell blocks and warders' quarters  for Imperial convicts shipped to Western Australia as  skilled labourers. Convicts were sentenced to transportation from England between 1850-1868, often served time in the Gaol. Wander through the cell blocks reading the plaques about the colourful history and gain an understanding of the difficulties experienced by the early settlers. The timber-lined cells, housed Aboriginal prisoners in the 1870s and contain various carvings which are said to be Australia's oldest Aboriginal cell art.

The gaol museum reveals stories about the early days of Albany town settlement, colonial artefacts, the inmates who were kept there and the gaol facilities.
