Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. HM Prison Fairlea was an Australian female prison located on Yarra Bend Road in the suburb of Fairfield, Victoria, Australia. The first all-female prison in Victoria, it was built on the site of the Yarra Bend Asylum, with remnants of the walls and gates being used in the layout of the prison. In 1982 a deliberately lit fire led to the deaths of three inmates. The rebuilt and expanded prison reopened in 1986. The prison closed in 1996 due to privatisation of sections of the prison system. Fairlea was demolished and the site converted to parkland.show more
