A prison isn’t your usual tourist attraction, but Pentridge Prison is a critical part of Coburg’s identity; the suburb was even called Pentridge back in the day. It’s no longer an actual prison - the site was sold in the 90s and has since been redeveloped. The epic bluestone facade of the building remains, however, as a testament to its fascinating and terribly sad past. In 1967, Victoria’s last hanging occurred at Pentridge, and in 2011 almost all of Ned Kelly’s skeleton was found in an old wooden axe box there. Bets on that this place is totally haunted. The Bluestone Cottage was where the warders lived. And this is now where the Coburg Historical Society has a Pentridge Prison information display.
