Yatala Labour Prison is a low- to high-security men’s prison in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. It was built in 1854 to enable prisoners to work at the creek, quarrying rock for roads and construction. Originally known as The Stockade it acquired its current name from a local Aboriginal word.
The prison has been expanded many times but still has functioning buildings that date to the 1850s. It remains Adelaide’s main male prison and although it was scheduled to be closed by 2011, it has remained open due to the Global Financial Crisis
Yatala prison, originally called The Stockade, was named after the Hundred of Yatala (roughly the historic District Council of Yatala). The word is from the Weira group of the Kaurna Aboriginal people, meaning water running by the side of a river. It is known as a labour prison by virtue of its vast industries complex and the use of convict labour in construction.
It is sited 10 kilometres (6 mi) north of Adelaide’s central business district, between Grand Junction Road and Dry Creek, and adjacent to the suburb of Walkley Heights. The prison sits on an escarpment of the Para Fault Block overlooking the Adelaide plains. Dry Creek, a watercourse usually dry summer and flows through a deep gully at the rear of the prison, with outcrops of exposed pre-Cambrian rocks that were extensively quarried as part of prison activity.
