About this Event

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 one of Australia’s most infamous citizen: the bushranger Ned Kelly.

Your ticket includes self-guided entry into the Old Melbourne Gaol and Watch House, as well as access to download the audio guide app.
