We have walked around a few times whilst we are staying in Beechworth. As it is autumn the colours of deciduous trees and still water with pretty reflections are really lovely.

Spent nearly an hour here walking around the lake in glorious sunshine. Ducks here and there and all sorts of terrain to walk on. Just pleasant to walk around and enjoy the views.

Many places in Beechworth are easily assessable and wander round and this is one of them. An easy walk that shows a variety of trees as well as outlining the history of the region.

Lake Sambell was really a great unexpected bonus in Beechworth. Well laid laid out walking tracks, children's playground, sandy beach and clean toilets. Head towards the Lake Sambell Caravan Park and then turn right before you get to the entrance.

What a delightful little walking track near the centre of Beechworth! Tough enough on the eastern side to challenge you and very easy on the western side were there is a beach, playground and BBQ area.

This place attracts people of all sizes and types. In many ways it is the focus of the town, especially in Summer when everyone swims in the Lake.
