The passage to freedom

From 1883 until 1979, many inmates must have looked along this dark corridor, with its corrugated iron roof, solid metal prison bars, pitted block walls and well-worn floor reflecting the bright daylight outside, and dreamed of escaping. Now an important historical site which attracts thousands of visitors a year to the museum, the gaol at Fannie Bay in Darwin, Northern Territory included watchtowers, a 'native section' for aboriginal prisoners, and an infirmary, added in 1887, which contained gallows used up until the last executions held in the Northern Territory in 1952.
