Locked Up With History Tours

Join Deb Robinson, General Manager and Historian of the Geelong Gaol and host of the historical true crime podcast "Locked Up With History" to hear some of the gaol's history and the stories of those who were once contained within the walls.

For 170 years, the Geelong Gaol has overlooked the township of Geelong leaving its mark in history. Opening in 1853, the Geelong Gaol is one of Australia’s most intact 19th-century convict prisons. And in 2023, we are celebrating her 170th birthday!

Deb Robinson has been researching family and local history for more than 30 years and for the last decade has researched the Geelong Gaol, her prisoners, and staff. Some of these stories have been told in the “Locked up with History” podcast but there are many more!

Join Deb for 45 minutes as she regales you with tales of the building, prisoners, and staff that once worked or were incarcerated here.
