Beechworth Things to Do: 31 reviews and 76 photos
About 5kms outside of town is Woolshed Falls, which is part of the Chiltern-Mount Pilot National Park. They're not huge falls, but the approach from the car park is from the top of the falls and there are plenty of rockpools for exploring and sitting in when the heat demands it.
There's a viewing platform from above the falls to the left of the carpark. There's also a track that provides a 30 minute walk round the top of the falls - or there is a direct path from the car park to the top of the falls.
Interestingly, as you turn into McFeeters Rd and the road to the Falls from Chilern Rd, there is a plaque at the road side. This informs you that you are standing on the site of the small goldrush town of Woolshed (hence the name), where once 2/3,000 people lived. There is nothing remaining to indicate such a place existed!
Directions: Take the Sydney Rd out of town towards Yackandandah and follow signs, turning off on to the Chiltern Rd after about 3.5kms.
