The Old Adelaide Gaol

Old Adelaide Gaol

Adelaide Gaol was an Australian prison located in Thebarton, South Australia, Australia. The gaol was the first permanent one in South Australia and operated from 1841 until 1988. The Gaol is one of the two oldest buildings still standing in South Australia, the other being Government House which was built at the same time. The prison is now a museum, tourist attraction and function centre.

Heritage reconstruction work included the repaint of the prison cells inside the main building as well as the interior of the out-building using a heritage palette.
