Opened in 1841, Victoria's oldest surviving prison housed thousands of inmates over the years, including the infamous Ned Kelly who was hanged here in 1880. The architecture remains untouched, apart from a few modern conveniences. For braver souls, candlelight visits are also available. The gift shop sells a variety of Australian souvenirs as well as Kelly memorabilia. There is also a cafe nearby.
