As a Christmas present to my paranormal team, we spent the weekend in Beechworth. Our tour guide, Bronwyn, was amazing. She showed us around and let us explore and we had the time of our lives! Can't wait to go back.

A lot of history to know about this place, our tour guide was so much fun and made it exciting for us! We didn't see anything this time but you can definitely sense something in a few of the places.

Some people in our group were too afraid to go but those that did didn't find it scary so much as sad. A lunatic asylum in the 1800s right up until 10 years ago must've been a very hard place. Our guide Bronwyn took us...More
