“Beechworth - Courthouse”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Visit the historical town of Beechworth. You will find the magnificently preserved sandstone courthouse that still stands as it was in its original condition. The courthouse is not a grand building in the tradition of modern day structures. It is small, practical, and saturates the visitor with historic antiquity. It is easy for you to harness your imagination and travel in time to the days when Ned Kelly terrorised the locals, yet captured the public attention. You will learn about Ned Kelly's life, you can stand in the very court dock, where he stood awaiting for his committal hearing, and walk into his holding cell. Historic Beechworth is a mini story of Australia. 1852 saw the commencement of the establishment of Beechworth, come and feel the experience.

I'm a Ned Kelly enthusiast who recently visited the Beechworth Courthouse and I absolutely loved it! The staff were informative and friendly. A definite must see.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

As with most things in Beechworth it is maned by volunteers. Great Job by all. Would love to see Beechworth in spring when the sun in shining. So much of the town is closed down obviously suffering from the same financial fate as the rest of Australia
