Beechworth

 

Victoria, Australia

 

Beechworth is Australia's best-preserved gold rush towns. Four million ounces of gold were officially mined in 1852, when thousands of hopefuls rushed to the gold fields in search of their fortunes. The prosperity generated by Beechworth gold has left an admirable legacy for today's visitors. The Beechworth Historic and Cultural Precinct is a fine example of this legacy. With over 30 buildings listed by the National Trust, Beechworth has a remarkable architectural heritage, from imposing hotels, churches and government offices to miners’ cottages and the gaol where bushranger Ned Kelly was imprisoned. Take the time to explore the nineteenth century streetscapes, stopping to discover the many fine antique stores, cafes and restaurants, craft shops, tea rooms.

"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is

not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is

not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does

the will of God abides forever."     Letter - 1st John  ch.2  vs.15-17.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
