Artist's Description


Beechworth is Australia’s best preserved gold town. All four members of the Kelly Gang spent some time in Beechworth Gaol, Ned for a total of two years. Ned appeared in the Beechworth Courthouse on August 6 1880 on a charge of murder. He was committed to stand trial here before returning to Melbourne for his Supreme Court trial and subsequent hanging. Ned’s mother Ellen also appeared in the Beechworth Court, in 1878, and was held in the Beechworth Gaol for a short time before being taken to Melbourne to complete her sentence. The Courthouse is just one of a number of remarkable 19th century buildings making up the Beechworth Historic and Cultural Precinct, which provides a fascinating insight into life during the gold rush and Ned Kelly era. You can visit many of Ned’s former haunts by following the Golden Mile walking trail.

Lake Samwell is located in the historic mining town of Beechworth in the Australian state of Victoria. The lake is man made and is the result of flooding ol mining areas.

Beechworth i a must to visit with many heritage buildings dating back to the goldrush period when gold was plentyful
