Follow the blue plaques and other landmarks to experience highlights including historic buildings such as the courthouse and cell from the Kelly Gangs history and the Benalla Town hall, The Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop memorial, paths and walks around the Benalla Botanical Gardens and Lake Benalla, including the Bandstand (1911) and boulders bearing the stories of two events critical to the settlement of Benalla, Major Mitchell’s crossing and the Faithfull massacre.

Discover layers of Benalla’s history between the mid 1840s and early 1900s starting from town’s earliest beginnings as the Broken River Border Police Station, to being a busy service town during the Ovens gold rush, to becoming a thriving rural township and centre in the early 1900s.
