HMAS Sydney II Memorial
Old Geraldton Gaol & Craft Centre
The gaol's gloomy cells held prisoners from 1856 to 1985, and framed historic documents weave a fascinating tale of daring escapes, gruesome executions, and offences punishable by transportation to – and forced labour in – Australia (such as theft of £149 worth of cigars, cigarettes and asparagus).

Mass is at 7am, with an additional service at 6pm on weekends. Tours are held at 10am Monday and Friday, and 4pm Wednesday.
