Our Story

Limelight Tours was lucky enough to be given permission to continue to tell the story of the Old Geelong Gaol from the new owners in June 2019. The Geelong Gaol had its beginnings way back in the 1840s and will continue for the forseeable future.

We want to show you the story of this building, and the people who have passed through its doors during its 138 year operational history and beyond.

Our Approach

Limelight Tours has been trading as Twisted History since 2016 running ghost tours and paranormal investigations at the Geelong Gaol along with a range of murder tours, cemetery tours and haunted hotel tours throughout Victoria.

Over the years we have completed hours of research through newspapers and public records to ensure the historical accuracy of the tours we deliver – be they night or day.

We are a nationally accredited tourism company who in 2018 won the bronze award for Cultural Tourism in the Victorian RACV Awards
