Escaping Boggo Road

Available soon

The story of escapes and attempted escapes from Queensland's most notorious prison. The surrounding redbrick walls were supposed to make it escape-proof, but these stories show that prisoners had other ideas, and many of them tried to gain their freedom using ropes, bedsheets, saws, hooks, keys, bar spreaders, guns, trucks and a combination of ingenuity, stupidity and opportunism.

This book is an update of the Inside History 'Escaping Boggo Road' publication (2005).
