Locked Up With History Tours

For 170 years, the Geelong Gaol has overlooked the township of Geelong leaving its mark in history. Join Deb, General Manager and Historian of the Geelong Gaol and host of the historical true crime podcast “Locked Up With History” to hear some of the gaol’s history and the stories of those contained within the bluestone walls

Opening in 1853, the Geelong Gaol is one of Australia’s most intact 19th-century convict prisons. And in 2023, the goal is to celebrate her 170th birthday!

Deb Robinson has been researching family and local history for more than 30 years and for the last decade has researched the Geelong Gaol, her prisoners, and staff. Some of these stories have been told in the “Locked up with History” podcast but there are many more!

Join Deb for a 60-minute tour as she regales you with tales of the building, prisoners, and staff that once worked or were incarcerated here.

Tours are available on select Sunday afternoons fortnightly at 1.30 pm and at other times by arrangement

  • Please note this tour cost includes entry to the Geelong Gaol Museum both before and after tour
