The Heritage Walk

Beechworth Echoes of History - Follow the Pioneers

A self guided walking tour of the Central Business District of Historic Beechworth, Victoria.

Following the discovery of gold in Spring Creek in 1852, the town of Beechworth quickly became a busy centre for commerce, trade, government administration and law for the thousands who poured onto the Ovens goldfields seeking their fortune. As business and commerce grew so did services such as education, health and communications. Beechworth was a vibrant, lively place enriched by the contributions of people from many different cultures. The legacy of the pioneers is preserved in historic buildings and heritage streetscapes, which remain for you to discover on this self-guided walking tour of the town.
