Old Melbourne Gaol

The address of 377 Russell St. in Melbourne once sent shivers down the spines of local criminals. This is the location of the Old Melbourne Gaol, which is the oldest prison in Melbourne. In the 18th century when it was built, it towered over Melbourne’s skyline like an ominous colossus, housing a foreboding prison near the magistrates court and police city watch. The building is now a museum and is one of the oldest and most significant buildings in Melbourne. The gaol, where some of Australia’s most hardened criminals were kept, is a star attraction and a timeless monument. ... Read more »

Old Melbourne Gaol Top 3

  • Stop by the museum in this gaol, which has displays of old items from the gaol; visitors can also go on a guided tour, which can be quite chilling.
  • Go on a tour of the old police watch house or magistrate’s courthouse, both of which were part of Melbourne’s intricate justice system and the Old Melbourne Gaol.
  • Visit some of the other attractions around the gaol, like the Melbourne Museum, the royal exhibition building, the Carlton Gardens and more.

Getting There

The Old Melbourne Gaol is easy to reach from Melbourne’s city centre and the surrounding areas. The gaol is located at 377 Russell St, which is quite near the city centre. The Melbourne Central train station is just one block away, as are tram stops Victoria St/Swanston St, La Trobe St/Swanston St and Russell St/La Trobe St. Visitors who are coming from outside of the area can fly into the Melbourne International Airport, which is about 23 kilometres away from the city. Other options for getting to the Old Melbourne gaol include taking a taxi, renting a car or walking.
