Beechworth

Beechworth is one of Victoria's best-preserved gold rush towns. One of Australia's richest goldfields, it features the courthouse where Ned Kelly's final trial commenced, and is close to the Rutherglen, Milawa and Beechworth wine regions. Four million ounces of gold were officially mined in Beechworth in 1852, when thousands of hopefuls rushed to the goldfields in search of their fortunes. The prosperity generated by Beechworth gold has left an admirable legacy for today's visitors and the Beechworth Historic and Cultural Precinct is a fine example. With over 30 buildings listed by the National Trust, Beechworth has a remarkable architectural heritage, from imposing hotels, churches and government offices to miners' cottages and the gaol where bushranger Ned Kelly was imprisoned. Take the time to explore the 19th century streetscapes, stopping to discover the many fine antique stores, cafés and restaurants, craft shops and tea rooms. Discover Beechworth after dark on a lantern-lit walking tour and learn about local history. Visit Burke Museum to learn about local Aboriginal heritage, gold fever and see Ned Kelly's death mask. Don&t leave without enjoying a meat pie, lamington or pastry at the famous Beechworth Bakery. Popular local events include the Chinese Lantern Festival in February, Beechworth Harvest Celebration in May, Ned Kelly Weekend in August and Beechworth Celtic Festival in November. Beechworth is 267 kilometres or approximately three hours from Melbourne via the Hume Freeway, Great Alpine Road and Wangaratta-Beechworth Road. V/Line trains run from Melbourne to Wangaratta, where you can connect with the bus service to Beechworth.
