Old Melbourne Gaol

Old Melbourne Gaol in Victoria

The Old Melbourne Gaol provides a chilling example of 19th century prison life. It was built as a short term remand prison in the 1850s. It showcases a large collection of penal and phrenological memorabilia. It was the scene of 135 hangings, the most notorious being Ned Kelly. His original armour, death mask and pistol, lashing triangle and cat-o-nine tails are all exhibited.
