Yackandandah is a former gold mining town. Take a stroll through this inspiring village to check out the unique galleries, shops, studios and the back drop for the Australian movie Strange Bedfellows starring Paul Hogan and Michael Caton.

Yackandandah Museum with a collection of the many stories of the district held by the Yackandandah and District Historical Society. Open Wednesdays – Sundays only; and
Kirby’s Flat Pottery made by the internationally renowned potter John Dermer. A great place to pick up affordable, original pieces, or just browse the gallery with its stunning collection of salt-glazed ceramics. Open Saturdays and Sundays only.
Roam Beechworth on paths paved with gold during the 1850s gold rush.
Whilst in Beechworth take a tour of the Historic and Cultural Precinct which includes the Gaol that hosted bushranger Ned Kelly in the 1850s, the Courthouse, Burke Museum, Telegraph Station, Powder Magazine and the Ned Kelly Vault.
Or take a leisurely stroll along the two main streets of Beechworth (Ford & Camp St), and discover the treasures that lie within the beautiful shopfronts.
There are plenty of eating and tasting places to choose from. We recommend a stop at Beechworth Bakery, Beechworth Sweet Co., Bridge Road Brewers and Beechworth Honey just to name a few.
We will then return back to Albury.
