The historic township of Beechworth is a walker's paradise. The chemistry of beautiful nature, National Trust-listed buildings and vibrant retail precinct make Beechworth a unique destination for walkers. There are gentle, easy walks around the centre of town, more challenging routes up to the former Mayday Hills Asylum and many well kept and marked trails through the beautiful Beechworth Historic Park.
The staff at the Beechworth Visitor Information Centre are a wealth of knowledge and take bookings for guided tours. For those keen to really explore, copies of the book 20 Walks Around Beechworth by Evan Willis can also be purchased at the Visitor Information Centre.
