Beechworth is part of Victoria's High Country with sensational views, historic villages, architectural influences of the 1852 Gold Rush and is famous as Ned Kelly country. The region is rich with locally grown produce; fruit, vegetables, honey, nuts, berries, apples, preserves, with excellent restaurants, cafes, boutique breweries, bakeries and food and wine retailers to showcase it. Beechworth is a well regarded wine region with views of towering winter snow capped mountains, tree covered ranges, magical lakes, wild rivers and tranquil rural farmlands. All this makes for the perfect stop-over between Melbourne and Sydney.
