Coming to visit the Geelong Gaol and have questions?


When are you open?

We are open between 1-4pm on weekends, public holidays and school holidays.


Do you have tours?

Tours are currently only available for private groups. However you can visit us during opening hours and spend as long as you like! There are three floors to explore, and we are working towards updating the displays. We have opened the Rogues and Vagabonds special exhibition and our next special exhibition will be opened in November 2020.

If you have a school group, probus group, tour group or any other type of group and would like to arrange a private tour, please contact us to discuss


Is there disabled access?

As the Gaol is a heritage building, there are no facilities for those with mobility issues to access the upper floors. However, we will be introducing new displays on the ground floor so all can enjoy no matter what their ability!


Is there parking on site?

There is no on site parking at the Geelong Gaol, however there is plenty of street parking around the Gaol.
