A Night in the Watch House

9pm - 10PM

Selected dates


In keeping with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services guidelines and having sought expert advice on the growing impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to suspend all night tours at the Old Melbourne Gaol until further notice. 

Our goal is to do everything we can to help curb the spread of this outbreak in Victoria.

As a result we are issuing all ticket holders for tours in the month of April a full refund. All customers who purchased a ticket for this period will receive a refund (including fees) directly to the account used to purchase. Tickets for tours from May onwards are still going ahead at this stage.

Thank you for your support and understanding.


Immerse yourself in the criminal underworld that was the Melbourne City Watch House in an experience set in the original cell block inhabited by the likes of Squizzy Taylor, Chopper Read and other unsavoury characters.

Please note: A night in the Watch house is an adult experience strictly for those 16 or older.  ID will be required on the night.  Anyone under 16 will not be admitted to the tour and tickets will not be refunded.

Those aged 16 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

This immersive experience is conducted in the dark, includes loud noise, adult themes and confined spaces.  Appropriate  footwear is recommended.
