Travelling to Beechworth by car will take approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes from Melbourne.  It is a living legacy of a gold rush era and it is one of the best preserved gold rush towns with its carefully restored honey-coloured colonial buildings and historic precinct. The 19th century streets showcase an eclectic mix of collectables, handcrafts, galleries, cafes, old pubs, provedores and restaurants. There’s always something fascinating in one of those charming shops.

The little town offers a number of tourist attractions such as many family owned vineyards, the Beechworth Gorge, Woolshed Falls, national parks, the historic Rail Trail and gold diggings. We didn’t do any of that. We only stopped off at this town for lunch and to stretch our legs from a long drive. Going to Beechworth Bakery alone was certainly worth it.

TIP: You must try anything from the Beechworth Bakery.  Anything in that bakery is irresistible.
