Wail at the Gaol

This year’s Wail at the Gaol will feature something for the whole family. The team have upped the spooky factor by offering two amazing experiences.

First, don’t forget to pick up your loot bag, and then if you are feeling brave venture into New Building where your nerves will be tested with a brand new, and even scarier, experience. If you have smaller children you may choose to skip this section!

For the first time the Gaol will also be welcoming the Gaol Road Markets, which will feature 40+ stalls and a food court. The market will run from 10 am to 2 pm (some food trucks will remain until 6 pm), with live music between 2 pm and 6 pm.

On booking, don’t forget to purchase your fun-filled loot bags as supplies are limited!
