BOGGO ROAD GAOL

Sketching the Heritage Listed Boggo Road Gaol with the BRISBANE CITY SKETCHERS
Boggo Road Gaol was a notorious Australian prison and is located on Annerley Road in Dutton Park.
In 1863, land off Boggo Road was surveyed and set aside as a government reserve before being proclaimed a gaol reserve in 1880.
Boggo Road Gaol opened in 1883 as the Brisbane Gaol. It was used mainly as a holding prison for those serving short sentences or on remand. Its initial infamy came from it being a place of execution. In 1903, a new purpose-built separate women's gaol was created.
Today, the prison is open for the public to visit through guided historical tours run by Boggo Road Gaol Pty.
