We enjoyed the informative tour of the old Brisbane (Boggo Road) jail which ran 90+ minutes. Thanks to Tom for a good tour. Would recommend this tour and likely do some of the other tours.

We did the Boggo Road Ghost tour with Mikayla on a stormy Wednesday night. Fun and informative. They provide torches and a book is included in the price.
