Out and about in Beechworth

Located around three hours from Melbourne, not far off Australia’s highest and most scenic drive, the Great Alpine Road, Beechworth is a popular stopover for tourists and travellers through Victoria’s northeast. But with its historic charm and picturesque location in the alpine foothills, it’s also a wonderful holiday destination in its own right.

There are few Gold Rush towns where the history has been so well preserved. Whether you’re browsing the heritage-style stone shops around town for gifts and antiques, or spending a day in the Historic Precinct’s Burke Museum, Courthouse, Telegraph Station, Powder Magazine and Vault, Beechworth takes you back in time. Stories and characters from the mid-1800s are captured and brought to life here, including notorious bushranger and folk legend, Ned Kelly.

If you love to get out amongst nature, the lakes, mountains, forests and waterfalls around Beechworth won’t disappoint. Pack a picnic and visit Lake Sambell, or fish for your own lunch at Lake Kerford. Have your camera charged up for the striking Woolshed Falls, or get out on two wheels at Flame Trees and the Beechworth Mountain Bike Park.

Beechworth is also a walker’s paradise, with a plethora of day walks ranging from scenic lookouts and historic sites, to beautiful public gardens, lakeside strolls, and trails through groves of 150-year old deciduous trees. The Mount Stanley Scenic Reserve is a short drive from town, and with a 90 minute drive south you’ll have the stunning Mount Buffalo National Park as your playground. 

It’s easy to work up an appetite in Beechworth, and the region is filled with passionate growers and producers – think local honey and pick-your-own strawberries. If you’re there on the first Saturday of the month, the Beechworth Farmer’s Market and its various food stalls are well worth a visit, then wash it all down with a tasting at a local winery or brewery.

Staying at least a few days to take it all in is a must, and Beechworth has a number of caravan parks, camping options and cabins that take full advantage of the stunning surroundings. Climb up into the mountains or go deeper into the nearby valleys and you’ll find a tonne of more remote spots to camp – all you have to do is go exploring.

The Victorian high country: up, up and away…from everything

Between the Murray River and south-east coast Victoria is a beautiful pocket of the high country. Well, it’s high for Australia – though European and Canadian visitors may giggle at what we call “high”. You call them mountains??
