This is the side entrance to the Beechworth Courthouse. Prisoners would have entered through this door and then into the holding cells to await their trial. The windows to the female holding cell (left of the door) and the male holding cell (right of the door) can be seen. To the north is the Sub Treasury, with the Timber Lock-up behind it.
Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories. Victoria's mainland and islands have a total length of 2,512 kilometres coastline which is about 4.2% of Australia's 59,736 kilometres of coastline. Australia is the driest inhabited continent and Victoria is no exception although the state capital Melbourne has the reputation to have 4 seasons in one day. Victoria is located in the southeast of mainland Australia and includes the most southern point on mainland Australia at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
