The Old Beechworth Gaol is one of Australia’s most significant post-European cultural sites. Its role in the chain of events that led to the execution of Ned Kelly is significant as it housed Ned’s mother, Ellen Kelly, many of the Kelly sympathisers and Ned himself, alongside his brother Dan and the rest of the Kelly gang.
The Old Beechworth Gaol is more than just the Ned Kelly story with many other characters spending time behind bars, and more than a few characters who helped keep them there.
Not forgetting the history of The Old Beechworth Gaol and what it has seen over the past century, we move onto more positive times and one that focuses on being connected and collaborative within a coworking environment - Breakout.
‘The use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge.’
Breakout provides an interactive work environment for freelancers, small firms, home-based businesses and entrepreneurs who wish to work in a connected and flexible environment at one of Australia’s most iconic and historical buildings. Providing a productive, flexible and fun environment. Breakout is a place to share knowledge, collaborate and support new ideas in a 'community within a community'.
Being a part of the Australian Centre for Rural Entrepreneurship (ACRE), a social enterprise with the mission to ignite entrepreneurship in young people and their communities across rural and regional Australia, Breakout is a place to share knowledge and support entrepreneurs.
Breakout has the potential to support and accelerate innovative start-up businesses through introductions, networking and mentorships. One of the key aspects of coworking at The Old Beechworth Gaol is to support young people with ideas.
Research has shown that coworking spaces with a consistent theme work best and ours here is supporting young rural entrepreneurs.
