The Old Dubbo Gaol has recently designed an Education Pack for the benefit of schools. The pack contains activities you can use to enhance the educational experience that the children have at Old Dubbo Gaol by bringing it back into the classroom and can be downloaded below.

The school tours that are held in the Old Dubbo Gaol cater to varying grades from primary and secondary towards the tertiary end of the educational scale. Some of the areas that are focused on are;

  • A day in the life of a prisoner in the 19th century

  • Illness and sickness in a 19th century Gaol

  • Capital punishment and executions

  • Punishment and discipline within the prison system

  • The development of gaols over the 19th and 20th centuries
