I learnt so much about Australian History that I didn't already know. The audio going on whilst you are walking through is also very informative. I enjoyed reading the transcripts about the Women's stories - and I would love to see them all put into a book to purchase. They were so interesting.

Kids had lots of fun looking for different objects on the activity sheet. Had fun in the court house taking lots of photos of Ned Kelly armor.

This site is well preserved and houses the Court House where Ned Kelly was tried. Lots of information dotted around. You can do a tour although we didn't.

We have visited Beechworth many times and love the history. This day the host in the court house was a particularly great bloke, we had a good chat about world history and thats why i love to come to these places, its not just what you can see, its what you can hear about too.

It was probably just me but I didn't think too much of this place, especially after visiting the vault where we had already learnt about Ned Kelly. The information was a bit repetitive between these two places (but I guess that cannot be avoided). I could have easily skipped it.

We visited the courthouse on a sunday morning. Very interesting history of the courthouse and Beechworth community. Beautiful antique furniture. Worth the small entry fee.

A bigger than expected country courthouse just oozing with history. So may eminent judges sat on its bench (eg, Sir Isaac Isaacs and Redmond Barry). It also dealt with some well known historical characters such as Ellen and Ned Kelly.There are lots of written displays to read and a number of audio recordings which give you a feel for what...

We were lucky enough to be invited into the courthouse for a reenactment if the Kelly trial and even got to partake in the event. The gentleman running the event was funny but more importantly informative. Was great to learn about the building as well as the history and the Kelly trial
