Port Phillip Prison


Port Phillip Prison is a maximum security prison, which can accommodate up to 1107 prisoners. As Victoria’s largest prison, its primary roles include the management of prisoners in custody, administering custodial sentences for assigned prisoners, delivering a range of significant health services, programs, education and industries in an environment that encourages positive behaviour and attitudes leading to self-directed rehabilitation.

Port Phillip Prison was the third of the privately operated prisons to open in Victoria. It received its first prisoners on 10 September 1997.
