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.

Thank Amy D
