Travel Guide

Beechworth featuring a river or creek as well as a couple

Indulge and discover fabulous food, wine and craft beer or wander, relax and re-connect amongst elms and oaks, heritage architecture and boutique shopping.

Beechworth is one of Australia's best-preserved gold-rush era towns. Take a step back in time and follow the journey of Beechworth's fascinating history, from pioneers looking to strike it rich in the goldfields, to the region's indigenous people, to some of Australia's most notorious bushrangers. Wander the streets and discover the perfectly preserved buildings, visit the living museums of the Beechworth Historic & Cultural Precinct or join one of the popular walking tours and be treated to an entertaining and informative insight into this picturesque and historic town.

From bountiful harvests and locally foraged ingredients, to craft beer brewed in the centre of town, to internationally renowned local wines, Beechworth boasts a vibrant local food scene. Graze your way around town at comforting cafés, welcoming restaurants and popular local pubs.

Take a leisurely stroll along Ford and Camp streets, the two main streets of Beechworth, and discover the treasures that lie within the beautiful shopfronts. Browse through the sophisticated boutiques boasting luxury fabrics, designer labels, vintage jewellery, quality leather goods and contemporary homewares and gifts. Kids big and little will be delighted with the popular lolly shop and toy store, with old and new favourites galore.

Just a short walk, drive or ride from Beechworth, you will be greeted with breathtaking lookouts, national and state parks, cascading waterfalls and idyllic picnic spots. Follow the historic Spring Creek on the Powder Magazine to Woolshed Falls walk and be greeted with an observation deck overlooking the majestic falls. To get the blood really pumping, try the mountain bike trails only a short spin from the centre of town. If you prefer to sit back and soak in what mother nature has provided, you're sure to love the view from the Murmungee Lookout. A short walk from the centre of town is Lake Sambell, perfect for cooling off in the warmer months, or throwing a rod in and trying your luck with the underwater locals.

A wide range of accommodation options and a thriving events calendar can only add to the attraction of Beechworth.
