Venue Setting

Melbourne’s most unusual and spectacular venue

Winner of Australian and Victorian Tourism Awards.

Constructed in the mid-1800s and located in central Melbourne the Old Melbourne Gaol was built of blue stone and still contains the original cells. In those cells, some of Melbourne’s most notorious criminals were held including the infamous bushranger Ned Kelly.

One of Australia’s most fascinating tourist attractions, the Gaol can transform through lighting into an unexpected and unique setting in the heart of Melbourne.

The Gaol is centrally located and can host large numbers and cater for a variety of corporate and private functions.

We provide great entertainment value and can enliven your evening with a private tour of the Gaol, including a ghost tour. We even provide entertainment highlights with guest appearances from historic characters such as Ned Kelly and gaol governors to roaming police sergeants.
