The State Government is putting up $1.2 million dollars to spruce up the Kyneton courthouse—new interview rooms, a new registry counter, and “improved public amenities“. If only they had turned around! There’s already some absolutely top-notch public amenities right behind the courthouse.
Will the redevelopment also be spaceship grey in colour and feature space-age italicised fonts? Not bloody likely!
Fun fact: Ned Kelly was charged with highway robbery at the courthouse in 1870. These days the Kelly legacy of highway robbery is maintained by Caltex and BP (who are still at large).
If all this sightseeing and history makes you hungry, do yerself a favour, head down the main street, and get Australia’s Best Pie 2018 into ya.
