The first Dunedin Gaol Food Truck nite has a selection of Dunedin’s best street food vendors. While you’re there, take a tour of the historic Dunedin Gaol, the only surviving Victorian courtyard prison in New Zealand. The old Prison is a Category 1 Heritage New Zealand listed building and is owned by the Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust.
A Gaol tour on the night will take 30-minutes with the first tour starting at 5-15pm. Gaol tour entry - $10 per adult or $5 per child U18. Tours will take you inside the 120 year old prison cells, used to hold prisoners until just 12 years ago. Experience different parts of the prison and hear stories from its past.
Tours places are limited & pre-booking is advisable.
NB: Due to the confined areas and many stairs and uneven surfaces (there is no lift) we advise that the Tours are not suitable for persons with limited mobility or persons who require use of a wheelchair or walking frame.
There is a small processing fee payable with each booking which you will be charged. We appreciate your support for the work of the Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust by meeting that cost. EFTPOS is not available for Tour spaces paid for on the night.
