Visits are held on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays (except on Christmas Day and Good Friday) from 10:00 to 15:30. However on Saturdays only between the hours of 10:00  and 12:00 no children are permitted (they may come after midday only). Prisoners may have four adult visitors and a reasonable number of children on every visit day. If more than four visitors arrive, they may share the visiting time as long as only four adults are visiting at one time.

Professional visits (lawyers etc) may occur at other pre-arranged times.

Phones:

Prisoners may use the telephone during out of cell hours providing it does not interfere with work or musters.

Prisoners must arrange for money to be put into their phone account. Prisoners are not permitted to receive incoming calls; however urgent messages can be left at the prison switchboard. All calls may be monitored by prison staff.

Prisoner Mail:

Prisoners may write and receive as many letters as they wish. They will be charged current postage rates for each outgoing letter. All mail (other than exempt mail) will be scrutinised for contraband. Letters will not be censored unless the General Manager suspects a security breach. In such cases a record of intervention and the reason why will be kept and the prisoner will be informed.
