Old Geelong Gaol

Historic Building in Geelong

Built in 1849, HSM Prison Geelong may have closed its doors in 1991, but this old bluestone jail remains as terrifying as ever. You'll see its grim cells set over three levels, plus the shower block, watchtowers and gallows. Each exhibit is accompanied by audio, explaining anything from contraband of crude homemade weapons to former cellmates such as Chopper Read (cell 39). Ghost tours are also run here.
