During the mid 1970s the dormitory style accommodation at Malmsbury was converted to smaller units with bedroom accommodation. This increased the options for treatment available in the Centre.
When the Langi Kal Kal youth training centre was closed in March 1993, Malmsbury became Victoria's main Youth Training Centre for 17 to 20 year old offenders.
In 1994 a major redevelopment of Malmsbury commenced. The redevelopment improved the centre's safety, security and program capacity for 17 to 21 year old young male offenders. The new 75 bed centre at Malmsbury was opened in December 1997.
The Victorian Government records relating to wardship and adoption date from 1864 to the present. These records were created by the state government departments that were responsible for child welfare in Victoria. Some of these records are held at the Department of Human Services (DHS), and some are held at Public Record Office Victoria (PROV). Generally, records less than 99 years old are not open to the general public because of the personal and private information they contain. If the records are about you, or members of your family, you have a right to access these records.
