A must see for anyone who visits this area of Victoria.. Make sure you have your camera when you stand in the dock or sit as judge.

Well set out and gives a good account of law and order in bygone days. Whilst Ned Kelly is obviously central, some of the other trial stories are fascinating. It takes about 45 minutes to look around in detail.

Good chance to see around the whole courthouse include all the various back rooms and for the kids to sit in the various parts of the courtroom itself and "re-enact" for a bit of fun. A bit of Kelly memorabilia and story helps bring the historical element alive.

Dont go here without taking one or both of the "Echoes of history" tours which leave from the Town Hall opposite the courthouse. The talented guides, in our case Laura, will make the history of this historic town come to life and the Ned Kelly tour in particular is fascinating. The Courthouse itself is probably the most impressive of the... More
