Old Geraldton Gaol Craft Centre

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Discover the history of Geraldton’s former gaol and whilst there check out the diverse range of local arts and crafts at the Old Geraldton Gaol Craft Centre. Take a guided tour of the buildings, discovering the prominent role the gaol played in the state’s history. Originally a hiring depot for convicts and gaol, the building was constructed in 1858 and was in operation until the late 1980s.

At the completion of your tour, spend some time perusing the eclectic arts and crafts available for sale from many of the talented locals. The Old Gaol Craft Centre forms part of the Bill Sewell Complex, a magnificent group of buildings, one of which operated as the Victoria District Hospital for many years.

Tours of the Old Geraldton Gaol Craft Centre and Victoria Hospital run on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and depart from the main building verandah. Please note that during summer months the Old Gaol may be closed and tours will not operate. Please contact the Visitor Centre for more information. Entry is by donation.

Geraldton is a charming beach side town just a 4.5 hour drive north of Perth.
