Old Melbourne Gaol
Evoke emotions, stir the senses.
Built in 1839 and then restored as a tourist destination in 1972, the Old Melbourne Gaol recently won the National Tourism Award for Best Cultural and Historical site. Events have been held in the Gaol, Former City Watch House and Old Magistrates for the past 10 years, and today it is one of the most sought after event spaces in Melbourne.
The walls are lined with historic references and cultural artefacts making the venue a popular museum for local, interstate and overseas guests. Events are conducted with a catalogue of tours, performers and themes.
The Former City Watch House has remained in its original state since operations ceased in 1994. The extremely popular ‘Watch House Experience’ provides an educational and entertaining beginning to any event. Besides your typical cocktail or dinner event, The Old Melbourne Gaol has been a stage for many weddings, launches, conferences, music productions and major filming.
