Beechworth is a well-preserved historical town located in the north-east of Victoria, Australia. It is 3 hours north of Melbourne, 4.5 hours south of Canberra and 7 hours from Sydney.

The town was originally used for grazing by the settler David Reid; the area was known as Mayday Hills until 1853, when it was renamed Beechworth.

The region is geographically varied, with towering winter snow capped mountains, tree-covered ranges, magical lakes, wild rivers and tranquil rural farmlands.
