    This was a really cool experience. The tour guide was amazing, and he was super knowledgable and clearly passionate about the tour! The only downside (message to management) is that there are lounge chairs areas set up along the different floors now, which disrupts the illusion that you're in a creepy, haunted, abandoned prison.

    Great, but group was oversized

    I had a great time learning the history of Australian law & order, ghosts and other supernatural activity were second to that. Limited free time to experience anything supernatural and the group size was too big. During the limited free time, the group was overly loud and excessively used their flash/lights. Would recommend opening another wing as what was seen was limited, and if you really wanted to focus on the ghost/supernatural aspect that free time was done in the quiet, with no lights and was extended.

    Foreboding eerie entertaining .

    Really enjoyed this experience I personally did not see any ghostly beings but definitely sensed a foreboding presence perhaps left behind by all the misery and suffering within the walls of D block .The Guides were amazing telling the stories of the inmates twined with history and humor made this a very interesting and entertaining night .
