HM Prison Morwell River, opened in 1951, was an open prison located near Boolarra, Victoria. The Inmates and prison officers (normally bitter enemies, "crims" and "screws") called a truce while working on the project. Prisoners were taken to shopping centers in Morwell and left unattended, at total liberty and on trust, to rattle their tins. Civilian clothes (rather than the shapeless "prison green" tracksuits and Dunlop sneakers) were worn. The local community was generous, supportive and accepting of the men from Morwell River Prison Farm. 
The prison was closed in 1997 and was later converted into an Adventure and accommodation centre.
