- As Ararat's premier tourist attraction, this is a perfect rainy day activity for a family visiting the Grampians, or even a planned group function including weddings and catered dinners. Having started out as a gaol (jail) in the 1850s during the gold rush, and after 100 years in operation housing Victoria's criminally insane men, its doors are now open to the public! Join one of the four guided daily tours (no two tours are the same), or book their private conference room for your next event. Or, for an off-the-wall catered party, rent out the entire cell block and entertain up to 100 of your closest friends. Tours last 1 to 1.5 hours, and thrilling night tours can be provided upon request. For timings of when guided tours begin, refer to their website.
