About this Event


The Old Melbourne Gaol will re-open to the public from Friday 27 June, 2020.

When the Old Melbourne Gaol was built in the mid-1800s, it dominated the Melbourne skyline as a symbol of authority. Inside the Gaol, dangerous criminals were held alongside petty offenders, the homeless and the mentally ill.

Between 1842 and its closure in 1929 the gaol was the scene of 133 hangings including Australia’s most infamous citizen, the bushranger Ned Kelly.

Tickets include self-guided entry into the Old Melbourne Gaol and a guided Watch House Experience.
