In the 1890s, a visitor wrote: “From a distance, the summer aspect of Beechworth is that of a town embowered in luxuriant foliage, while an interior view presents to the eye long vistas of stately trees bordering the footpaths, and forming an umbrageous canopy beneath whose continuous shade the pedestrian may pursue his way in comfort.” Pretty sure they enjoyed their visit! In February 1852 gold was discovered at Spring Creek. By 1857 more than 20,000 people lived in Beechworth. This walk also takes you for a wander on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail now shared by walkers and avid cyclists.
