Lake Sambell

Lake Sambell is a short stroll from the centre of Beechworth, and is a picturesque recreation reserve and a popular venue for water and boating activities.

Music is a central point to any vibrant culture, and in the north east of Victoria and surrounding regions, the calibre of musicians and artists is astounding. A key philosophy of the Beechworth Music Festival is to provide local, regional and upcoming young artists with a new opportunity to perform and play alongside a host of acclaimed national musicians.
