Old Melbourne Gaol

377 Russell Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000

Step back in time to Melbourne’s most feared destination since 1845, Old Melbourne Gaol.

Shrouded in secrets, wander the same cells and halls as some of history’s most notorious criminals, from Ned Kelly to Squizzy Taylor, and discover the stories that never left. Hosting day and night tours, exclusive events and kids activities throughout school holidays and an immersive lock-up experience in the infamous City Watch House, the Gaol remains Melbourne’s most spell-binding journey into its past.

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.
