Hangman's Night Tour

This tour is age recommended for people 16 years and over.


What stories would a hangman tell you if he was guiding you around the Gaol, where he was the master of the rope?
This is a dark theatrical tour through the Old Melbourne Gaol, led by our Hangman, illuminated by a single lantern. The tales he will tell are not for the faint of heart.
