Search the Gaol’s darkest corners for clues, studying alibis of colourful crims, examining physical evidence, and scanning weapons for DNA. Using your smarts and the help of modern technology, can you discover WHO killed Grey, WHERE he was killed, and with WHAT weapon?

The Old Melbourne Gaol Cluedo Experience runs for a strictly limited time, commencing 27 June 2020.
