B is for Beautiful Beechworth

We had a lovely day today exploring Beechworth in Victoria. Warning! There are a LOT of photos.....Loads of history here, particularly about notorious bushranger Ned Kelly.
We visited the historic Court House where Ned appeared many times.
Of course you can't help get in the swing of things once inside....sorry excuse the pun!
This is definitely a likely suspect! Some one blabbed...

We then had a bit of a meander up the quaint paved main street..........

and popped into Beechworth Honey.....real, proper Aussie honey....came out with treats and their amazing lip balm!
On a previous trip to this State I developed a bit of a taste for Beechworth Bakery lemon slice.....this is the Orginal bakery....woohoo!
Very happy to indulge once again. ..oh and of course a pie!
After lunch off to Gaol....well just for a visit.
We visited 2 historic brewerys....one where we taste tested cordials...flavours from yester year....still made today and delicious.

The other. ...Bridge Road Brewers....we bought home samples of both.
We finished our day with a short drive to Woolshed Falls. Quite wonderful after all the rain.
You can view it from a platform or walk down to right beside the falls....magic!
Just had to get closer...
This was a surprising treat from nature....loved it!
Ok.....must away, very weary and more exploring tomorrow! Did I mention this place is freezing! Well to this sun lizard from Queensland it is!
Night folks!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
