The former Dunedin Prison is a category one listed historic place. Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust bought the former prison for $20,000 in June, and will soon be opening it for small group tours.

Trustee Sarah Girvan said while dates were not yet finalised, small group tours to see the “bare bones prison” were likely to begin next month for a donation of $10 per person.

Donations would go towards the prison’s conservation plan – expected to begin in November – and which would “identify our next step in terms of redevelopment”.
