More jails that begin with B

We’ve had a look at Boggo Road and Bendigo. How about Ballarat?

Ballarat is an old gold rush town about 90 minutes drive west of Melbourne. The old jail was built c1860 and closed in 1965. You can see what’s become of it if you walk down to the end of Lydiard Street South in central Ballarat. These days assorted original, restored and not-so-original remains have been integrated into the SMB campus of Federation University Australia.

THAT’S ALL
