Adelaide Gaol Gift Shop

The Gaol Gift Shop features a wide collection of Adelaide Gaol themed souvenirs, clothing, and novelties. We host a range of fascinating and historical books which explore South Australia’s history, crime, and characters who passed through the Gaol gates.

We stock a beautiful range of local Australian made pewter ware, skincare, cosmetics, and stationery. Traditional Aboriginal design work features in a number of ranges including homewares, giftware, and toys.

Stay for morning or afternoon tea and indulge with a fresh barista made coffee or cool beverage, and a treat from an assortment of hot pastries and sweets. Milk variations and vegetarian options available upon request.
