Close your eyes and imagine...
a story about passion.
The historic town of Beechworth is respectfully known as the 'Elegant Dame' within our family of towns. With all the sensibilities of a grand 19th century town you’ll be reminded of a Jane Austen novel, as you look down from the foothills of the Australian Alps onto the wide, tree-lined streets, with their deep granite gutters and shady, century-old verandahs.
Built upon the splendour of the early gold-rush days, Beechworth is recognised as Australia’s finest historic gold-mining town. This is where you can truly unwind for a few days of indulgence. Discover our alfresco cafes dotted along historic streetscapes, or experience a taste of fine dining at excellent restaurants with world-class wine lists. Perhaps some shopping is your preferred way to unwind? Our specialty shops and gourmet local produce add to the street ambience that is so uniquely Beechworth.
Home of many talented artists and artisans from around the world, the town is brimming with galleries, antiques, pottery and old wares that will delight and surprise you.
Beechworth is a fascinating town. It is a blend of culture, adventure, mystery, history and passion – all the elements of a good novel.
If you’re feeling adventurous Beechworth has the ideal climate for enjoying a touch of action – four seasons of the year. There is bushwalking, gold-panning, scenic drives and walks, fourwheel driving and touring, swimming, fishing, golf, and bike riding.
