Ned Kelly is fascinating, and even more so when the staff of places like this love the story and retell it with a passion. The old courthouse is not that special, but the passion of the staff make you want to look inside.

Our tour group participated in a mock trial of Ned Kelly on our visit to the Court House last week. It was very well organised and conducted by our host, Michael I think! We all learnt something new and gain more insight into this rather terrible part of our history. Beechworth is always worth a visit and is a town... More

Worth a stop. Great history lesson. We Had to buy vault entry separately (Ticket linked to Burke Museum entry .... which was ok...BUT would be better if linked to court entry for direct relevance. Unfair marketing ploy. We made do with peering in courtroom windows!

He was extremely professional and welcoming, also aided my hubby with my wheelchair to gain entry. The building... More

The building has been beautifully restored, and you can wander through all its rooms and see musty old law books lining the library walls, spot horsehair wigs on pegs, and hear audio extracts of various trials of gold rush villains. One room has case studies of women who fell foul of the law for everything from infanticide to consorting with... More

Draped in history, this courthouse is a must visit for anyone who is interested in Australia's past. It takes about 20 minutes to walk around the courthouse and it's various rooms on a self guided your which means you can take it at your own pace. Lots of very interesting history to read about. The highlight for me was being... More

Wow! What a building. Stunning architecture combined with a great story. With the Kelly and Burke museums thrown in, best value for money anywhere. My young girls loved it all!
