You can fossick for precious stones or flakes of gold, explore small family owned vineyards, the Beechworth Gorge, Woolshed Falls, scenic drives and national parks. There is a wide variety of eating experiences from a light snack in a stylish café or a pub meal in one of the many hotels. You can enjoy a picnic in the gardens, beside the lake or experience fine dining at its best in an award-winning restaurant. You must also try the daily fresh delicacies of the Beechworth Bakery.
Beechworth is well known for its shopping and speciality shops which are open seven days a week. There are many galleries, antique and gift shops on offer around the busy arts precinct where many local works are displayed.
The country around Beechworth is full of reminders of the gold rush days.

Beechworth is not just a well-preserved old gold town, it's a thriving country town, making it an ideal base from which to explore northeast Victoria.

Hello Roger and Sue,
I would just like to thank you for the past 2 weeks. We enjoyed our stay ot Beechworth very much - obviously the weather was amazing, but we were also impressed with your running of the caravan park, its neatness and the activities that you provided.
We decided to head home a day early because of the prediction of rain - after such a period of glorious weather, it would have been a pity to get damp canvas on the last evening.
We wish you all the best for the coming year, and we might see you again next Christmas.

Well located and a v friendly site. Recommended.
We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful park facilities that we and our extended family enjoyed last weekend. Without exception everyone in our party commented about the cleanliness of their accommodation and the beautiful and well-kept surrounds of the park.
We are happy to report that all 24 of us made it to Bright in one piece and Brian has since commented that it is the best birthday that he has ever had...and now he has had 60 of them!
Thank you again for your contribution to the celebration (including allowing Pauline and Joanne into our villa to hang some streamers and balloons)...can't wait until we return!
My husband son and I stayed at Lake Sambell Caravan Park 4 years ago at Christmas, it was just another caravan park back then BUT........now, wow!!!

Kelly weekend is held every year the first weekend in August to commemorate the trial of Edward Kelly in 1880. The main street is blocked off and the locals dress up in 1880s costume. There is court house re enactments of the trial and other Kelly re enactments but you have to book early if you dont want to miss out. In 2010 was the 30 year anniversary of the making of the Last Outlaw and it was the 130 year anniversary of Neds Death. So the four sets of armour was brought together and put on display at the town Hall, actors from the series came into town and memoribilia from the series was located at a temporary display at the Burke Museum. The Burke museum has permenent Ned items which include the door step that Joe Byrne stepped over when he shot his friend Aaron Sherrit (he is now burried in the Beechworth cemetery along with his brother )It also has a death mask of Ned and an exact replica of Joe Byrnes Armour. While in Beechworth look for the site of the Imperial Hotel where Ned and Wild Write had their famous boxing match and the Woolshed valley is where the police hid in caves to watch over the Byrnes hut while hunting for the gang in 1879. Aaron Sherrits hut was also in the Woolshed valley.
Clarifying our pet policy: We allow small dogs during our off-peak season only and by prior arrangement. No pets are allowed with a cabin or on-site caravan booking.
