Prisoners of Toowong Cemetery: Life & Death in the Old Petrie Terrace Gaol

'Twenty-three men died in Brisbane Gaol, Petrie Terrace, during 1875-82, and were buried in Toowong Cemetery. Find out how a horribly bungled Brisbane hanging drew the attention of Downing Street; How the 'Aboriginal Ned Kelly' ended up in Berlin; Why a university still has the heads of two of the executed prisoners; and how a convicted child molester became Queensland's executioner.'
