Fairlea prison, was an alternate prison for prisoners to be sent to.
Chrissie Latham, after stabbing Bill Jackson with a pair of scissors, was transferred to Fairlea Prison, however she was eventually transferred again to Barnhurst. Prisoner Clara Goddard is sent there as well, apparently to serve out her sentence in peace.
Fairlea Prison was actually the first all-women prison in Victoria.The prison closed in 1996 due to privatisation of sections of the prison system. Fairlea was demolished and the site converted to parkland.
