Beechworth Goods Shed
Located in the heart of historic Beechworth, the Beechworth Goods Shed sits along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail opposite the old railway station in the heart of Beechworth.
The Goods Shed will undergo a $460,000 refurbishment to restore the building, retaining its heritage fabric whilst improving facilities to make it a welcoming space.
The refurbishment is jointly funded by Indigo Shire Council and the Federal Government, through the Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Program.

About the refurbishment
Through the refurbishment we want to maintain the Goods Shed’s heritage features, through sensitive design and mainly recycled materials.
Refurbishment works will include:
- Replacement of the external cladding of the wall and roof with new galvanised iron
- Refurbishment of internal and external platforms
- Improvements to access ramps
- Natural lighting and ventilation
- Upgrade the electricity supply to three-phase power
The first stage of works, which will begin in early December, involves cleaning the inside the Goods Shed and temporary removal of an internal platform to prepare for the refurbishment.

We are currently in the final stages of the design process and expect the second stage of works to start early in 2019. Once the clean-up and designs are complete, a tender will be advertised to award a contract for the remaining refurbishment works to be carried out.
Expressions of Interest
As part of the Good Shed refurbishment, Indigo Shire Council will also be calling for expressions of interest for potential investors and businesses to partner with us.
We will be looking for businesses that will complement the Rail Trail and existing tenants in the Railway Precinct.
We expect the refurbishment to drive private sector investment and create new commercial opportunities that will reinvigorate Beechworth’s Railway Precinct. To find out more visit our EOI page.
