The Old Jail cells and kitchen were originally located at Kulki Station, however they were relocated to their current site on Dowling Street in 2018.

The cells were constructed in 1930 using cypress pine with a galvanised iron roof and were lined with hardwood.

Come down and see what it would have been like to be 'locked away' for crimes committed back in the day. Listen to Police Sergeant George Schnitzerling talking to prisoner Sidney Barney.

All tours are fully automated so you can visit at your own leisure, you just need to purchase a swipe card available from the Thargomindah Visitor Information Centre. When you've finished all tours, drop your card into one of the card return boxes at each location or return to the Visitor Information Centre.
