Introducing Beechworth

Beechworth’s historic honey-coloured granite buildings and wonderful gourmet offerings make this one of northeast Victoria’s most enjoyable towns. It’s also listed by the National Trust as one of Victoria’s two ‘notable’ towns (the other is Maldon), and you’ll soon see why: this living legacy of the gold-rush era will take you back to the days of miners and bushrangers – Ned Kelly was locked up here for the murder of three Mansfield policemen. Most of the town spreads along two intersecting streets – Ford and Camp Sts – where you’ll find old-fashioned shops and some of the best foodstores, cafes and restaurants in the region.
