Beechworth Gaol




'Beechworth Gaol Unlocked' reveals Beechworth's less well known history, one that's rich with tales of great escapes, betrayal and even romance all within the walls of the gaol.

The site has been used as a place of incarceration since 1855, continuing until the closure of HM Beechworth Prison in 2004. The Gaol is now open to the public revealing a time capsule allowing the buildings to tell their story.

Our costumed prison warder guides reveal the site's colourful past through three different 60 minute walking tours as you...
