  • Fantastic! We booked the 45 minute tour of the gaol. Our Tour Guide Chris was excellent. Very knowledgeable and friendly. This tour is a must when visiting Beechworth. So much interesting history. Going through the cells which housed inmates was one of the highlights. Highly recommended. I
  • I've been to this gaol a few times with friends over the years for tours, amazing history. I remember walking by the gaol as a child when it still had inmates, so very interesting to tour inside to see what it's like! Tour guides very friendly and have all the relevant information, there's now a nice little cafe: great on a chilly day to have a cuppa coffee before exploring the gaol.
