What we do best

Completed in the mid 1800s and located in central Melbourne, the Old Melbourne Gaol is constructed in blue stone and still contains the original cells and historic features. In these cells some of Australia’s most notorious criminals were held, including the infamous bush ranger Ned Kelly.

One of Australia’s most fascinating and unique spaces, the Gaol has capacity for up to 120 guests for a banquet dinner, or 350 for a cocktail reception. Add to the experience with some entertainment of an educational element, including guest appearances from Ned Kelly to duty sergeants and gaol governors; or bands, DJs and roving performers.

The precinct also includes the Former City Watch House and Old Magistrates Court available for private events. The Old Melbourne Gaol is a venue that will stir the senses and get your guests talking.
