Halloween at the Old Melbourne Gaol

Ever wondered what goes on after dark inside the stone walls once home to Melbourne’s most notorious criminals?

This Halloween, you are invited to explore the Old Melbourne Gaol in a rare and different light. From 5:30pm, wander the quiet cells and hallways, hear bone-strumming tales of unexplained sights from our roaming Ghost Tour Guides and listen carefully for the creaking of the Hangman’s rope.

Do not miss the opportunity to take a spooky ‘cellfie’ or monstrous mugshot like no other. Halloween treats will be available and costumes welcome.
