Sensory Friendly Sunday

Old Dubbo Gaol will be opening early on the first Sunday of every month for a sensory-friendly hour (8am - 9am). This time is perfect for children and adults who prefer a sensory-friendly experience. During this hour the soundscapes will be turned off (including the talking mannequins), darkened areas will have more light and additional warnings for sensitive content.

Social Story

Old Dubbo Gaol has also created a social story to assist those attending the Old Dubbo Gaol before they arrive.  If you have any questions prior to your arrival please call and our staff will assist.
