First built in 1861 and active for over 130 years, the Old Castlemaine Gaol has seen men, women and children of all ages pass through its imposing wooden gates.
It is now open daily for tours, houses a café for breakfast lunch and dinner and is a one-of-a-kind music venue.
Don’t miss out on the chance to experience for yourself this piece of Australian history.
Grab your friends and spend Saturday night listening to local Castlemaine band, Dirty Serpent playing their original 70's style of blues/rock mash up music.
The Old Castlemaine Gaol is proud to presenting a night of pseudo-impro, electric string orchestra, without the orchestra with a double bill of electric violins and drum dance with The Twoks and Nigel Maclean's Dub ‘n Co.
Trioc’s sound is at once earthy and ethereal, reflecting the band members’ respect for the torchbearers of the Irish musical tradition as well as their own unique musical vision.
'Peter and the Wolves' are a Castlemaine based trio (Peter Bodin, Martin Myles and Kim Murata). They play wickedly wild Wolfie original songs.
