Arch Enemies - Old Melbourne Gaol, Melbourne - The HDR Experience by 


BEST VIEWED LARGER

The Old Melbourne Gaol is Victoria’s oldest surviving prison and until it closed in 1929, housed Victoria’s most hardened criminals. It’s also where Victoria’s infamous bushranger Ned Kelly finally met his match.

Built between 1841-64, Old Melbourne Gaol was used to accommodate short-term prisoners, ‘lunatics’ and some of the colony’s most notorious criminals, including the outlaw Ned Kelly, who was hanged here on 11 November 1880.

Old Melbourne Gaol was established in 1841 and remains a fabulous insight into Melbourne’s historical past. The jail was the setting for 135 hangings.

The Cathedral ceiling of the main cell block caught my attention.
