Jack's Magazine, the remarkable former explosives store by the banks of the Maribyrnong River, has been regularly open to the public via guided tours, up to the end of 2018.

These tours are currently on hold until further notice.

When they recommence, bookings will be essential and can be made via www.jacksmagazine.org.au

For groups of between 15–20 we may be able to organise a private tour. Please email your enquiry to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Working Heritage also opens up the site for special events like Open House Melbourne and NGV Melbourne Design Week
