Set in a lovely and well preserved sandstone building. The inside of the courthouse was in excellent condition. You can stand in the docks in the very spot where Ned Kelly stood when he was sentenced! The side rooms all have very interesting articles and bits of information.

This is in fantastic condition and the displays in the rooms were very interesting. Watch out if you have kids with you as some of the cases described are very disturbing (infanticide, child sexual assault etc). Our kids were having too much fun sitting in the dock and on the bench to notice the upsetting court case descriptions in the... More

Wonderful to see buildings intact from mid to late 1800's. Went to several re-enactments recently and they were great and just as much fun for townsfolk as visitors.

A thoroughly enlightening historical experience. Get the Gold ticket for $25 which gets you in to most of the attractions and great guided walk tours through Beechworth.

Visit the historical town of Beechworth. You will find the magnificently preserved sandstone courthouse that still stands as it was in its original condition. The courthouse is not a grand building in the tradition of modern day structures. It is small, practical, and saturates the visitor with historic antiquity. It is easy for you to harness your imagination and travel... More
