Make sure you get the golden ticket and do the 2 walking tours around town. Both are super informative and really give a great insight to the history of the town. The Ned Kelly walk was by far the best history insight of all the experiences we did. It is an easy walk and no fitness required. At the end... More

We cam strongly recommend a visit to the courthouse. While the Ned Kelly saga has pride of place, the museum shows a complete courthouse as it would have worked back in the 19th century.

The old courthouse is located across the road from the Visitor Information centre. An interesting tour, but nothing special. I would recommend some of the other sites in town if you are stressed for time.

Sit where Ned Kelly sat and picture the trial scene. Good presentation of the original Courthouse and its rooms - and good staff who help make it all come alive.

All interesting. Easy walking between buildings. If you are interested in Ned Kelly visit this as he was initially brought to court here.

Recently visited Beechworth Historic Courthouse, it was truely amazing to see all the old books and listed to audio being played in the courthouse. This history is being lost as it is not taught in our schools. The buildings have a feel about them that is hard to explain but you feel as you walk through the rooms. We took... More
