Geocache Description:

Welcome to the historic site of the Ovens Goldfields Hospital Facade located in the beautiful town of Beechworth, NE Victoria.
Beechworth Hospital Facade
The hospital was built and opened in 1857 at a cost of roughly 2347 pounds and  then closed & dismantled in 1940 when a new hospital was built on Sydney Rd, Beechworth.
The hospital, was the only one between Melbourne & Goulburn, NSW for a number of years, and serviced all of the N.E of Victoria. It had over 3600 patients in its first 5 years of opening. It had 100 beds & an isolation ward.
This site is registered by the National Trust and was renovated by the Lions Club in 1966.

This spot is one of Beechworths most photographed sites & is the backdrop for many wedding & family photos.
We hope you enjoy looking around the historic site & be mindful of distant muggles when retrieving & replacing the cache.

You are looking for small container with a log book and a few novelty items for all ages.
Please bring your own pen.
Happy Hunting from team Haveanez.
