Darlinghurst, Friday October 20th 2006.

This is the former Darlinghurst Gaol which opened in 1841, but wasn't actually finished until 1885. It was modeled on an American prison with a series of curved buildings grouped around a central watchtower. The last hanging at the gaol was in 1907. It became an educational institution in 1921 and is now the National Art College. Various rooms are reputed to be haunted. For more information please click here.
