Your chance to win a family-friendly Halloween experience in Adelaide

18 Oct. 2018 2 min read

The old Adelaide Gaol puts on a hell of a show for Halloween. Here’s how you can win tickets for your whole family.

This competition has now closed.

If you’ve ever visited the historic Adelaide Gaol, you’ll know it’s an eerie experience at the best of times.

You’ve trudged through the sombre halls and cells that housed prisoners right up to the late 1980s, you may have rung the bell that once sounded an inmates final moments, walked on the lawns, and sat in the hanging tower where 45 prisoners were executed during the Gaol’s 147-year history.

While these all give you a rare insight into life as a prisoner, it’s the cemetery that runs alongside the Gaol walls that's a lasting memory of the criminals who met their death at the site.

With such an extensive, grim history, it’s unsurprising that the Gaol is said to be regularly visited by some of the inmates and prison officers who once wandered its halls.

Now add the Halloween vibe into the mix. Sounds like the perfect setting for a spooky encounter. A family-friendly one, of course.
