I have lived in Beechworth North East Victoria for 29 years.
I have seen Beechworth transform from a majority Psyche, prison working township transformed to a exciting historic tourist destination. One thing has remained, breathe taking scenery, friendly, supportive community, with the odd quirky country character.
I have ridden and owned horses for 50 years, and the amazing mountain rides and trails was one of my draw cards to moving to this beautiful part of the world.
Thankfully, all the new clothes Beechworth is wearing these days has not changed the very heart of what i fell in love with, it is still a beautiful country town, where I can still ride my horses on the side of the roads, and get kind and considerate drivers passing me with care, the one finger wave and a stop and chat.
Come and enjoy our beautiful home.....we want you to come and have a sleep over and enjoy all our beautiful scenery, historical buildings, restaurants, great shopping and the best wineries in Victoria.
