I'm a Ned Kelly enthusiast who recently visited the Beechworth Courthouse and I absolutely loved it! The staff were informative and friendly. A definite must see.

As with most things in Beechworth it is maned by volunteers. Great Job by all. Would love to see Beechworth in spring when the sun in shining. So much of the town is closed down obviously suffering from the same financial fate as the rest of Australia

We only came here because of the reviews on trip advisor. Turns out it was lucky we read the reviews. The set up of this court house took me back in time.

Walk around and soak it all up. Stand in the docks. I would recommend that an audio tour be created for this that you can listen to, just to get some more information about the various rooms within the courthouse.

Sitting at the bench once occupied by Magistrate Mr Foster in August 1880, you can imagine that you had on the occasion of the Committal Hearing for outlaw Ned Kelly, charged with the murder of Constable Lonigan, the chance to determine "No case to answer", and change the course of history. The Beechworth Courthouse resounds in the ghosts of times... More

It's well worth a visit to Beechworth Courthouse. The displays are fascinating and the information well worth a read. There are some great historical facts to be learned and some interesting artefacts to be seen , a must see on a visit to Beechworth.

Whilst visiting the wonderful Beechworth recently (my third time) I took another look at the Court Rooms. I was allowed to join a group of people and sit in on the court room experience.
