The Old Melbourne Gaol is a must see Melbourne tourism experience in the CBD that provides the opportunity to walk on the blue stone footsteps in one of Australia’s most notorious gaol. The Gaol has an excellent range of interpretive signage to read and reflect on life in gaol


This iconic tourism experience is a good starting point to discover one of Australia’s most infamous criminals Ned Kelly. Or was he a hero?.


The City Watch House next to the Old Melbourne Gaol is a must do 40 minute experience to really feel what it is like to be part of the criminal justice process. This experience takes you through the arresting process by the Charge Sergeant and then into the lock up.
