Having The Exploring Adventure Visiting Beechworth

By Jasmine Zahara

People all over the world dream of going to Australia. Stories abound about its history and the exciting things that happened many years ago. One of the towns that one should visit is Beechworth, which is located between Melbourne and Sydney. This town abounds with history and has the buildings and other things to prove it.

The town’s museum will relate information regarding the original occupants of this area, an Aboriginal clan. Though there are no longer any of these people remaining, they left a very interesting history. A nomad type of people, they moved from one area to another according to the season. Information about them can be found at the town’s museum.

The town is also famous because gold was discovered there in 1852, which brought gold seekers from everywhere. It is reported that over a twenty five year period four million ounces of gold had been found. One activity available is being able to purchase a gold panning license and pan for gold. Wouldn’t it be something to brag about if one could go home with a gold nugget, they panned themselves?

For the history buff the town is full of preserved buildings and artefacts that are fascinating to explore. Things such as the Beechworth Post Office, built in 1870; the traditional slab hut from the gold days; historic Ford Street with examples of gold rush buildings are all available for exploration. This allows one to observe, first hand, the way things were done in the days when gold was the common exchange for goods. Also interesting are the six churches, all of which were built in the 1800′s.

To explore the court house, the carriage museum, the Burke Museum and the Ovens District Hospital Facade are added treats. Last, but not least, on the exploration trail is the Beechworth Cemetery. At the gate, one will receive a brochure, which describes the things of interest including some Chinese Burning Towers. As one wanders among the tombstones, it is easy to recognize many names of the original town founders.

Parks and gardens abound and a restored Historic and Cultural Precinct allows one to stroll at their leisure and, for a brief time, be able to visualize a time of long ago. The town’s people are more than willing to explain all the things of historical significance that abound virtually everywhere one looks. It is a chance, especially for the younger family members, to realize what it was like to be living in that period of time.

The Historic and Cultural Precinct is full of interesting things to view and there are people who are happy to explain their significance. As one strolls through the town one can almost feel the presence of those gold diggers of long ago and even go back to the Aboriginal Clan by a visit to the museum. When standing in one of these historical places one has a feeling that they have stepped back in time.

Excellent accommodations are available, including bed and breakfast, apartments, studios and many more. Many will have amenities such as microwave, air conditioning, and the Internet. It is always wise to check the offerings on the Internet and make an advance reservation to be sure one can receive the type of lodgings they prefer.

For someone who likes to experiment with unusual, or new, culinary dishes they will find their heart’s desire in the many restaurants and pubs that are available. Some of the restaurants have chefs that are known throughout the land for their ability to prepare and serve dishes that cannot be found elsewhere. Everyone in the family can find food they like from pizza to gourmet dishes. Visitors never forget the delightful experiences they had in the unusual town of Beechworth.
