Looking for something scary to do this Halloween? What about spending a night in the slammer? As the sun begins to set on the evening of Wednesday October 31, the Old Melbourne Gaol will throw open its iron gates and welcome you into its haunted halls.

Once home to some of Australia's most notorious criminals, the historic prison was the scene of more than 100 hangings – including that of Ned Kelly himself. So it's hardly surprising that there have been plenty of reported ghost sightings there over the years.

On the night, roaming Ghost Tour guides will regale you with spooky stories, while you'll also be able to purchase a variety of Halloween treats. The truly brave may also like to try an after-dark tour of the Watch House, a spooky walk through the original cell block once inhabited by the likes of Squizzy Taylor and Chopper Read.

Halloween at the Old Melbourne Gaol will run from 5.30–11pm.
