Details

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.
