Lock Up Experience

Capacities – Groups up to 50 people at a time, maximum 3 groups

The City Watch House was the place where felons were brought to face justice whether arrested in the streets of Melbourne for minor misdemeanours or being brought before the court for significant crimes. The Watch House was built in 1909 and operated until 1994 and its original interior is complete in every respect.

The Watch House Experience is a 40 minute interactive experience like no other. With Charge Sergeants as guides, guests are ‘arrested’ and encounter what it is like to be locked-up. Add this experience to your event and enjoy your canapés and drinks throughout, with a ‘Mug Shot’ photo opportunity on completion.
