Ned Kelly History

We loved the courthouse. The staff were fabulous, answering our questions so enthusiastically. The interpretive signage was interesting. We enjoyed our time.

We visited this lovely historic building with no great expectations. We were welcomed by a Ned Kelly lookalike with a great sense of humour and given an intro to the building. The rooms were well labelled and there's lots to read from historical anecdotes to newspaper articles. As expected, there's an emphasis on Ned Kelly and indeed his mother. All... More

Beechworth has such a wonderful history and much of it can be learned from a visit to the Courthouse. Sit in the Judge's chair and pass sentence on whoever comes to mind!

This beautifully maintained old courthouse has the distinction of being a part of Australian folklore due to the trails of Ned Kelly that took place here. A facinating piece of history well worth visiting.

The tour guide at the counter was very friendly and approachable. We took his recommendation and visited the Ned Kelly vault next door first. We then came back and looked through the courthouse. It was an interesting experience looking through the courthouse. It was breathtaking just looking in the library itself, with the collection of books that were in there... More

My husband and I visited the Beechworth Courhouse twice over the Ned Kelly weekend. It was wonderful to see it brought to life by the fantastic actors who presented the trials of Ellen Kelly on Saturday and then Ned Kelly on Sunday. The professional way they were conducted was fantastic and we appreciated the role of the narrator who filled... More

Being greeted in the office by tour guides that look the part and dressed the part takes you back in time immediately. It's interesting to see where Ned Kelly was tried for his crimes and as well his mother went through the system here as well. If your into history, do the full self-guided tour, (about and hour + )... More
