Now the pizza and pretzels on offer are just not any old baked goods. The baker, Marie, comes from Austria and these pretzels have been claimed to be the best outside of Munich and the pizza is 5 stars to match. Plus they also serve seasonal fare to tempt all your taste buds.

The Beechworth Goal is a must visit / oldbeechworthgaol.com.au/news/community-briefing
Another must while you are in Beechworth is to join the Beechworth Goal tour, where our famous Irish Hero come villain Ned Kelly was held. Ned served there in 1870 for 6 months before being committed to trial for murder. His mother, Ellen, served there at the same time for the attempted murder of Constable Alexander Fitzpatrick. The Constable kept trying to take liberties with her daughter. Then when the Constable tried to arrest Ned's innocent brother, Dan, of horse theft, a fight broke out with the Kelly Gang while trying to protect Dan and the Constable was shot.
