This is a very cool relic of the Golden Age, but to get the full experience get the pass at the info center. We just stumbled upon the fortress like structure while we were out walking, so we didn't get a chance to see the inside, but you can get a fair idea from within the walls of the grounds.

This is a great site showing early history at its well preserved best. The surrounding area provides easy access to this historic site with an easy 80m walk from the car park

The Powder Magazine is located at the end of Camp Street, a short drive from town. It was restored by the National Trust after having fallen into ruin. While it can be viewed from the outside, to inspect the inside, you have to get a Golden Ticket swipe card from the tourist info centre in town, which isn't terribly convenient... More

We went for a scenic drive and stopped at this. From the outside it looks great..and the drive to get there is lovely...but you have to book in town. It was a little disappointing that there was no way during holiday season to access this...other than returning to town along a one way track. Fortunately the drive was lovely.

Although we didn't purchase a Golden Ticket to get in, we had fun exploring around the area....maybe next time we'll have to get a ticket!

Didn't get to go in as we were walking the Gorge track and stopped off only to find out we needed a code to get in and there were no staff.

We have visited several times before but this was the first time we had seen it since the upgrade. You now stand in the darkened room as spotlights go on and off, illuminating items on display, with a great recorded commentary. Fascinating old building, sure to be a hit with kids as well as adults.

Well preserved and demonstrated.Best if you get the gold card and can go inside the magazine. A part of the beautiful gorge area.a must see in Beechworth.
