The gorge trip is an excellent scenic drive through quite a unique area with a stop at the powder magazine worth the few moments it takes

Unfortunately the sound & light show wasn't working when we visited - we used the torch on our phone to have a quick look around.

A wonderful experience, an original gun power magazine for the mining of gold back in the mid 1800's. The magazine went into disrepair but has been renovated by the National Trust.

The outside of the magazine was ok for a few minutes stop to catch a glimpse of history; but we didn't realise we needed to have a golden ticket in order to gain entrance and didn't want to do the circuit a second time.

It is nice to see historic buildings being kept for people to see. We stopped to have a look at this site on our way to the Woolshed Falls. Not a lot to see but it is still there

Old stone building in the Beechworth Historic Park where gun powder used to be kept away from the town as gun powder is so unstable. Small stone building. Not much to look at. Cant enter unless you buy tickets

We loved the architecture and history of this place but upon entry with our swipe card we were somewhat disappointed. The lighting was unsatisfactory and the recorded show had technical issues, we left before it had finished! Oh well, technology isn't always perfect!

Worth a visit if you are in the area, and love history and old buildings. We didn't go in as you need to pick up a swi[pe card/ Might do that next time we are up that way.
