Beechworth

-

BEECHWORTH is a scenic postcard township, filled with lush trees and gardens, boutique stores, a worldfamou­s bakery and renowned chefs, restaurant­s and cafes.

Visitors from around Australia flock to Beechworth every year to experience the history, gorgeous scenery and food delights.

The Historic and Cultural precinct offers more than 30 National Trust listed buildings so walking the streets of Beechworth is like literally stepping back in time.

From the Gold Rush era to the Kelly Gang, Beechworth has been at the centre of some of the most infamous time periods.

With a number of buildings more than 160 years old, it is a testament not only to the builders and architects of the time, but also a reminder that Beechworth was expected to become a powerful, wealthy and influentia­l centre for trade and the gold economy.

You can still find gold in ‘them thar hills’ and you still need a permit to search for it, just like those prospector­s of yesteryear.

If history doesn’t interest you, why not take a short walk, ride or drive to the cascading waterfalls of the Beechworth Gorge where you can take in the spectacula­r views of the Woolshed Valley.

A network of trails in and around the gorge offers visitors the chance to explore the natural features of the park and discover historical points of interest.

Few locations are as well preserved as Beechworth, so explore it for yourself, today.
