The Prospect was erected in 1858, a testament to the bustling gold rush era that once define Beechworth. The name "The Prospect" pays homage to both its original custodian, pharmacist William Witt, a founding member of the Beechworth Prospecting Association and to all the hopeful prospectors who flocked Beechworth in search of gold.

The Prospect also doubles as an art gallery, showcasing the works of talented established and emerging artists from North East Victoria and beyond. Many of these captivating works are available to purchase.

Monique | 17th March 2023

It was a pleasure to stay a weekend at this beautiful apartment located in the middle of the charming little historic town of Beechworth. Everything we wanted to see was in walkable distance including the Beechworth Gorge, Billson's Brewery, Beechworth Asylum, Lake Sambell and the beautiful boutique shops that lined the streets. The apartment was stunning, clean and had wonderful attention to detail from the linen to the kitchenware. This apartment makes for a lovely getaway for friends with a 6-sleep offering.
