Films: Peak hour traffic, Wander Victoria again
Location: Ford Street, Beechworth
A street that answers the age-old Ford-Holden question before you even ask it, Beechworth's main street is full of time-tested treats. Roam paths paved with gold during the 1850s gold rush, wander into National Trust-listed buildings, and browse boutiques just made for whiling away afternoons.
History buffs, visit the Beechworth Historic and Cultural Precinct and see the gaol that hosted bushranger Ned Kelly, the 1850s Telegraph Station and take a ghostly tour of the Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum.
Foodie in tow? Book ahead for a culinary journey at Provenance, a two-hatter in The Age Good Food Guide, housed in the grand Bank of Australasia building. For something more low key, kick back with craft beer and pizza in the 150-year-old coach house and stables at Bridge Road Brewery, just behind the historic Tanswells Commerical Hotel.
