The Old Jail cells and kitchen had been purchased by Kulki Station in 1959 and used as part of a house. In 2018, the Bulloo Shire bought them back and relocated to their current site on Dowling Street in 2018 as a tourist attraction. 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.
