Kirkconnell Correctional Centre, an Australian former minimum security prison for males, is located 30 kilometres (19 mi) east of Bathurst, New South Wales.
The Centre is located in the Sunny Corner State Forest and has a fully trained bushfire fighting team comprising both prison staff and inmates.
In September 2011 it was reported that Corrective Services NSW will close the facility in December 2011, as a cost saving measure. All of inmates were relocated to the minimum security wings at Bathurst Correctional Centre and Long Bay.
Famous quotes containing the word centre:
“Go anywhere in England where there are natural, wholesome, contented, and really nice English people; and what do you always find? That the stables are the real centre of the household.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
