Brave the dark and experience Old Melbourne Gaol by night.

The gaol has long been one of the city’s most feared sites. The prisoners may be long gone, but those in the know say their spirits have never left. Over many years, staff and visitors have experienced an unexplainable presence in the Gaol.

The gaol was the place of more than 100 executions, including infamous Australian bushranger Ned Kelly who was hanged in the gallows back in 1880.

Do ghosts still roam the cells? Discover for yourself with the ‘Ghost, what Ghosts?’ night tour.

Tours run on select nights and are conducted in darkness. Led by seasoned guides, the tour will experience the gaol’s darker history, bringing forth tales of the unexplained, the eerie, and the haunted.
