About Trial Bay Gaol

Situated within the Arakoon State Conservation Reserve, the 1886 picturesque ruins of Trial Bay Gaol stand tall amidst rocky foreshores and sandy beaches. Originally built as a public works prison and later used as an internment camp during the First World War, Trial Bay Gaol closed in 1918 to become a historical museum and tourist attraction. Wander through the gaol museum and explore the ruins before enjoying a picnic at the nearby Monument Hill. Camping is also available at Trial Bay, with an array of outdoor activities to keep the whole family occupied.
