House available in the historic gold mining town of Beechworth in North East Victoria, Australia. Our house is generally only available on weekends and/or when we go away on holidays so guests would have the whole place to themselves. If we get a weekend booking it's a perfect excuse for us to travel somewhere else for a couple of days. We do not run a B&B as such but are happy to make our home available when we're not staying there.

The main bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second smaller room has a double bed suitable for another couple or a single. Free wifi (fast broadband) is available for your smart phone or computer. The house is only a 5min walk (500m) from the centre of town with a range of cafe's, a famous bakery, microbrewery, wine bars, 4 pubs and some excellent dining, unique shopping and the historic precinct available. From the verandah at the front of the house there is a great view of the gorge and the National Park. Walking trails in the National Park are also literally only a few minutes walk away. We have a couple of chooks that roam around the back yard. Help yourself to their free range eggs ! There's a big outdoor BBQ in the back yard too which guests are more than welcome to use.
Beechworth is a great destination for mountain biking...we are active mountain bikers ourselves and can help you enjoy the local riding including the local mountain bike park. The town is also a great base to travel further afield in the north-east including the wineries of Rutherglen (30min), the picture postcard mountain township of Bright (40min), spectacular Mt Buffalo National Park (1hour), Mt Beauty (1hour) and the alpine snow resorts of Mt Hotham and Falls Creek (1.5hours).
If you're travelling on the Hume Freeway between Melbourne and Canberra or Sydney, Beechworth is an excellent detour (only an extra 20min driving off the Hume) and stopover to break the drive. Albury/Wodonga is 30min drive to the north and Wangaratta is 25min drive to the south of Beechworth.
Public transport is available to Beechworth by train and coach bus service from both Wangaratta and Albury.
