Roebourne Old Gaol Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Another fantastic reason to visit Roebourne. Make the Roebourne Old Gaol Museum your first stop in Roebourne.

The large octagon shaped building contains four wings each of which housed up to 40 prisoners. The Old Gaol was built with local stone that was quarried with the assistance of Aboriginal labour and stands as a harsh reminder of our colonial past.

Learn about the history of Roebourne and how it was once an important administrative centre. Visit Roebourne’s other historic buildings including the Holy Trinity Church, Union Bank, Victoria Hotel, Post Office, Hospital and the Court House.

Please note that the Roebourne Visitor Centre is no longer located at the Old Gaol. Tourist information is now available at Ganalili Centre in Roe Street.

Roebourne is a half hour drive east of Karratha.
