After accommodation with a difference?
The Old Mount Gambier Gaol was opened as a gaol in 1866 and closed as a functioning prison in 1995.
Recently refurbished, The Old Mount Gambier Gaol provides boutique accommodation, with cell and non cell rooms for all travellers, and is popular with backpackers, couples, families and groups both large and small.
The gaol premises boasts two large open courtyards, sports bar, conference facilities and grassed paddock area, ideal for functions and events, ranging from intimate gatherings to grand scale weddings.
Guests have access to many historical features of the gaol, along with four styles of dormitories available – three beds, four beds, six beds and a ten bed dormitory which can sleep a total of 45 people.
If you prefer something more private, you’ll find twin and double rooms along with a self-contained family unit, consisting of two bedrooms, private lounge, en suite and fully equipped kitchen.
The Old Mount Gambier Gaol is located in the heart of Mount Gambier, walking distance to the city centre, shops, bars, restaurants, and the famous Blue Lake. There is an aquatic centre and tennis courts next door.
Mount Gambier is half way between Melbourne and Adelaide.
