The Old Mount Gambier Gaol is truly a unique and unforgettable experience. We are a one of a kind accommodation facility that provides history, charm and the wow factor. Established in 1866, the gaol ceased operating as a functional prison in 1994 and has since found new life as an accommodation facility and function and event centre.
We created our business in 2010. Our gaol journey began with a vision to turn an old debilitated building into a vibrant community asset. Our vision has always been to create an atmosphere that is warm, inviting and both community and family focused.
We, along with our two young boys, own and operate our family business. We provide accommodation all year round for individual travellers, school camps, and sporting or community groups. We also provide self-guided or guided tours throughout our historic facility.
