“a true crime & justice experience”

Built in the 1800s to house Victoria's rapidly growing criminal population, the multi award winning Old Melbourne Gaol is one of Melbourne's oldest surviving buildings and one of the city's must-see attractions, especially their Crime and Justice Experience. Step inside this imposing bluestone institution, a site of over 130 hangings, and enter a world where some of Australia's most infamous criminals were held, including bushranger Ned Kelly and notorious gangster Squizzy Taylor. View the cells where the prisoners were held, discover the life and death of Ned Kelly, be arrested by the Charge Sergeant in the Police Watch House. You can also see the Old Melbourne Gaol by candlelight with one of the night tours. The Old Melbourne Gaol is a two minute walk from Melbourne Central Station. Or, catch the free City Circle tram to stop number seven on the corner of La Trobe and Russell Streets.
