PrisonBreak Explorers at Pentridge Prison Tours

March 30 @ 10:30 am - April 14 @ 12:25 pm AEDT

PrisonBreak Explorers: The Kids Prison Adventure returns to Pentridge Prison Tours these Easter Holidays.

Escape with the whole family these school holidays on Pentridge Prison’s new tour experience and discover the history of Australia’s most infamous prison. Suitable for children of all ages, this tour will take families inside the historic prison and the wider precinct.

Families will come together as the latest recruits in the Pentridge Detective Training Program to help thwart a daring escape. It is up to the young detectives to unravel the mystery of who is behind it, how they plan to escape, where it will happen, and when.

Along the way, visit key spots around Pentridge Prison that witnessed daring, and sometimes disastrous escape attempts, hear the stories of some of Pentridge Prison’s colourful characters, and what life was like on the inside.

While you’re there, head to Warders Upstairs to check out the free exhibition ‘Crime Time TV’, a fascinating and nostalgic journey through the history of Australian crime television.


“The activity was such a great balance between providing interesting information and giving us the chance to explore the space on our own.” 

“Kids were completely absorbed”
