HM Prison Geelong
The Old Geelong Gaol, formerly a high security prison, remains much the same as when it ceased operation in July 1991.
The basalt (locally known as bluestone) walls and masonary together with the finely laid brickwork are among the best examples of the artisans craft in the region.
It was built to replace prison hulks moored in Stingray Bay (between Eastern Beach and Point Henry) and an old log-walled prison in South Geelong. Here prisoners lived in absolute squalor.
The Old Geelong Gaol is operated and maintained by the Rotary Club of Geelong Inc
Geelong Council is preparing to sell the Old Geelong Gaol. Write to the Council and give your reasons why one of the last historic icons in Geelong should be retained.
