Feeling adventurous? Get into your hardhat, slip into your overalls, lock into the ladder system and descend approximately 20 metres below the Prison to explore a labyrinth of tunnels built by prisoners. Discover original blast holes, bores, oil lamp recesses and artefacts from the days when working in the tunnels was hard labour for prisoners.
Guides lead the trek through dry sections of the tunnels on foot, before boarding replica convict punts to explore the submerged passageways accessible only by boat.
