Beechworth Goods Shed


About the opportunity

Located in the heart of the historic township of Beechworth in North East Victoria, the Railway Goods Shed is an iconic building with huge potential.

Indigo Shire Council, along with the Federal Government, is investing $460,000 to refurbish the building.  With its strategic location linking both the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail and Beechworth to Yackandandah Rail Trail along with the proposed Beechworth to Yackandandah Mountain Bike Trail The Goods Shed is ideally placed to attract a catalyst business for the Railway Precinct.

Whether you’re an established business wishing to expand, a business guru looking for your next investment, or have a passion project which is just right for this site, Indigo Shire wants to talk to you.
