The People of Boggo Road

Learn about some of the people who experienced life at Brisbane's Boggo Road Gaol.
Thousands of people passed through Boggo Road during its 116 years of operation. Some worked there, some lived there, and others were just visiting. There was a wide range of personalities from all sides.

The prison had a lasting impact on just about everybody who experienced it.

The lists below are a work in progress as we try and link information about as many of those people as we can, both the famous and not-so-famous. Please advise us if you know of any information that you believe is worth including in these pages.
