Vic: ‘Forgotten Stories’ at the Old Melbourne Gaol


Event Details


Presented as part of the National Trust Australian Heritage Festival.

The Old Melbourne Gaol closed in 1924 and all but one cell block was converted for modern use. Join our friendly tour guides for a guided tour to discover the ‘forgotten stories’ from the former justice precinct. Visitors will be guided through the existing cell block of the Old Melbourne Gaol and then taken on a broader tour of the precinct to learn about how these areas were used; see where prisoners escaped from and identify hidden features in the surroundings of the gaol which tell us stories of the past.

Date: Every hour between 10am and 3pm, Wednesdays and Saturdays 19 April to 14 June 2017

Venue: Old Melbourne Gaol, 377 Russell Street, Melbourne

Cost: $15 (+ $5 General Admission Price)
