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.

We took our 4 year old and 7 year old and they were given 'Look and Find' sheets which kept them busy and allowed us to take our time to look at everything. This is the second time I have been to this courthouse and still find new things to look at.

This is the original courthouse for Beechworth, the place where Ned Kelly was tried. It is well worth a visit so you can stand in the dock where Ned Kelly stood during his trial. It is a beautiful old building.

Well preserved and excellent presentation of the old courthouse. Much better than other similar places across the country. A small entry fee, but when combined with other attractions makes it better value. It was great to be able to wander at our own pace.

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. Interesting exhibits and explanations of the functions of all the rooms. Well worth the hour or so we spent there. There is a lot to interest... More
