A small single storey brick gaol with bluestone trim. The entrance is highlighted by a large panelled doorway set in an arch surrounded by stone quoins. The front parapet has a stone corbel trim. The large square windows are surrounded by bluestone quoins. The roof is tiled with slate. The structure is a typical small gaol of the late Victorian period similar to others built in Hay and Gunnedeh. Probably the best example in New South Wales
