Old Beechworth Gaol
The Old Beechworth Gaol is one of Australia's most significant post European cultural sites. Its role in the chain of events that led to the execution of Ned Kelly is significant as it housed Ned's mother, Ellen Kelly, many of the Kelly sympathisers and Ned himself, alongside his brother Dan and the rest of the Kelly gang.
The Old Beechworth Gaol is more than just the Ned Kelly story with many other characters spending time behind bars, and more than a few characters who helped keep them there.
It's construction began in 1859 and completed in 1864 operating as a medium security prison until its closure in 2004.
A consortium of individuals, families and philanthropic organisations purchased HM Prison Beechworth (Beechworth Gaol) and are committed to transforming this highly valued heritage site into a thriving community space for the social and economic benefit of the region.
We invite you in!
