“The Seaside Resort” – The Geelong Gaol

For over 170 years, the old Geelong Gaol has overlooked the township of Geelong. It has been a place of incarceration of men, women and children during its 138 years of operational history. Some of the roles it has been used may surprise you! In this episode we revisit the history, the building and some the uses it has had!

Join Deb from the Geelong Gaol Museum/Twisted History team as we step back in time and explore the darker side of Victoria’s history so those who have come before us are not forgotten or ignored.

Once you have listened to the episode, join us in our Locked up with History Facebook group for more information, photos and to ask whatever questions you have!
