Wander the halls of the Old Melbourne Gaol, City Watch House and Gallows to get a sense of what life was like for the prisoners who lived and died here. Built in the mid-1800’s, the prison acted as a home to some of Australia’s most dangerous and infamous criminals including famous bushranger, Ned Kelly until 1929.

Step inside the small, eery cells and get "arrested and processed" by a Charge Sergeant (tour guide) on an interactive City Watch House experience included in all general admission tickets.

Excellent experience. Full of interesting facts. The kids loved the watch house, the lady sergeant was particularly good, especially with the younger children. Would recommend to anyone. Well worth the entrance fee. Experience Oz much cheaper than any other sites.
