Property for prisoners

Property and mail will generally not be accepted at visiting time.

Processing extra items into the prison at this time can slow the security process for all visitors.

All property items should be sent via a recognised mail carrier such as Australia Post.
This includes cards, letters and photographs as well as packages.

Tobacco, cigarettes and any other tobacco related items (including but not limited to: e-cigarettes, lighters, matches) are not allowed to be taken inside prisons.

Money must be sent through the mail and it will not be accepted at the prison reception area.
Find out more about money transfers.

Newspapers and books are not allowed to be brought to prisoners. They can buy newspapers via the canteen system and borrow books from the prison library.


The prison general manager will approve in advance if property can be brought to a prison in person.
For further information visit the prisoner property page.

This is in addition to the regular pre-approval process for sending property to a prisoner and the form that the general manager needs to sign.


Due to COVID-19 and mask regulations - food is not permitted at any of our prisons.
