Mount Buffalo - We had lunch next to this lake, on the lower levels of the mountain
A few weeks ago, we took a little break in Beechworth, which is about three hours north-east of Melbourne. It was one of the most important towns in Victoria during the Gold Rush of the nineteenth century and there is still lots of lovely architectural evidence of those heydays to see around the town.
As well as partaking of those time-honoured mini-break traditions of eating too much, going to museums and spending too much time in little boutiquey shops, we also spent a lovely day walking on nearby Mount Buffalo. As you can see, we were blessed with beautiful weather.

On another day - the view at Woolshed Falls, literally five minutes from Beechworth
