Quick responses, very helpful, not pushy, patient. Honestly a pleasure to deal with!


The Gaol is a sensational venue for your next event, function or wedding. It is centrally located, can host large numbers and can cater for a variety of corporate and private functions.

We can provide great entertainment value with a host of interesting characters to enliven your evening, from authentic historical characters such as Ned Kelly and Gaol Governors to roaming Police Sergeants.

One of Australia’s most fascinating tourist attractions can be transformed through lighting into an unexpected and unique setting in the heart of Melbourne.
