The Old Melbourne Gaol

Melbourne, Victoria 3000

The Old Melbourne Gaol is the heart of crime, law and order in Australia. It has so much history in it that people have come to love the place for housing some of the most notorious criminals in the country. Step back in time as you walk the hallowed halls of this 19th century prison. See the way how prisoners used to live in their cells, how they were treated by patrols, or even how they died! A ticket to the Old Melbourne Gaol grants you VIP access to what the old prison in Australia really was like. The place can get a little bit eerie at times, so prepare to be spooked!

Guided tours will let you experience being booked in the prison, being led to the cell block itself, and being locked into prison cells with inmates. It's a fun, exciting and spooky taste of the real prison life.
