Dont go here without taking one or both of the "Echoes of history" tours which leave from the Town Hall opposite the courthouse. The talented guides, in our case Laura, will make the history of this historic town come to life and the Ned Kelly tour in particular is fascinating. The Courthouse itself is probably the most impressive of the... More

Very interesting to see a well preserved 19th Century courthouse where a famous trial took place. The court itself is interesting but they also show you a lots of material about the more distinguished judges that sat there and the trials they dealt with,

Extremely interesting and a must for Bushranger buffs. Informative documentation together with plenty of artifacts from the 1800's covering an interesting and questionable time in Australia's History. Highly recommended.

Plus, from a medical view point, Ned must have had several traumatic brain injuries from his boxing and past injuries not east from being beaten up by eth police when he was young. And his mother?! "Die like a... More

Wow, this Courthouse has been so well preserved, the Tour Guide, Mr Michael Beattie, was such an inspiring, efficient, pro-active and pleasant representative, imparting information on Ned Kelly and other Criminals, who'd been processed through the court system. Definitely recommend this, the Library with it's replica of the streets of a bygone era, the memorabilia, as well as Neds Vault...... More

This is a superb historic court house. Take your time and just sit and imagine what it was like back in the old days.

Initially went here with my school in grade 3. Had to go back. Nice walk in for people with a heart for history and eye for its value.
