Halloween at Old Melbourne Gaol

8.00pm - 9.30pm

Tuesday 31 October 2023

This Halloween, immerse yourself in a chilling journey through the eerie corridors of one of Australia’s most notorious former prisons. Hear tales of the paranormal and brave the haunted cells on the most spooky night of the year.

This gaol is a grim place with a dark history. Stories of the unexplained have been gathered over the years from visitors and staff alike. None have been proven, yet. Join this chilling Halloween Ghosts Night Tour — if you dare!

After the tour, you’ll be able to roam the darkened cells and experience what goes on at the dead of night.

Come dressed in your best Halloween Costume and don’t miss the opportunity to take a spooky ‘cellfie’ or monstrous mugshot like no other. A door prize is up for grabs for the best costume.

Don’t be spooked! Here’s what you need to know:

– This night tour is conducted in the dark and includes confined spaces. Appropriate footwear is recommended.
– This night tour is not recommended for children 12 years and under.
– The tour lasts 1 hour followed by 30 minutes to explore the Gaol.
– Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your tour start time to avoid disappointment. Latecomers will not be granted entry and will not be provided a refund.
