Old Melbourne Gaol, National Trust of Australia (Victoria)

377 Russell Street Melbourne Phone: 03 9656 9889 Visit Website

The Old Melbourne Gaol is a vivid and stark reminder of the 19th Century prison life. Only one cell block remains of the original complex, built approximately 150 years ago. The gaol opened in 1845 and closed in 1929, and was the site of 135 executions, including the infamous Ned Kelly. Since closing in 1929 the Gaol has been used as a police storage facility and military detention centre during WWII.
