Education tours

"One of the best activities in Adelaide" 

Adelaide Gaol delivers education tours that specifically align to the Australian Curriculum and SACE. Guided education tours typically run for 60 minutes and explore topics such as general South Australian history, women at the Gaol and restorative justice. 

As part of the education tour, groups are guided through Adelaide Gaol by our experienced Education Officer or alternatively, you can book a self-guided tour to explore Adelaide Gaol’s hidden secrets at your own pace. Teaching resources for self-guided tours are available upon request.
