Friday 5th May

For the truly brave, the Sydney Bail Out will be held at the chilling Yasmar Facility, a former Juvenile Detention Centre, held on Friday 5th May 2017

Should you choose to accept, participants must raise a minimum of $1,000 to be released the following morning at 9am.  Upon their release, inmates will be welcomed with a well-deserved champagne breakfast. Alternatively, inmates can choose to ’Bail Out’ at 11pm to avoid the sleepover.

The Experience

The event is theatrical in nature with actors playing various roles, as we aim to give participants a unique experience. As an inmate, you will understand what it is like to be incarcerated, you will be  fingerprinted, have your mug shot taken, stripped of all possesions and will be searched for contraband.


Yasmar was once a fully operational Juvenille Detention centre in which some of the most unlucky young people in our society ended up after coming into contact with the justice system.
