Today IPT (Indigo Personalised Transport and Tours) is a local Beechworth business which began in 2019
The business is privately owned by Ian Gracie who, along with his family has lived in Beechworth for 20 years. Prior to returning to his roots in Beechworth Ian had owned and operated taxi and personalised transport businesses in Melbourne
Several generations of Ian’s family have lived in Beechworth or surrounding parts of the Indigo Shire for over 100 years.
After beginning with one taxi to serve the local Beechworth community and surrounding areas IPT has expanded to provide up to 3 vehicles including an 8 seat wagon and has also expanded its interests to include historic tours, horse drawn carriage tours and a range of other services which focus on the interests of visitors to this unique region.
Beechworth and neighbouring towns including Stanley, Yackandandah and many more were central to the Australian “gold rush” of the 1870’s
Indigo Personalised Transport and Tours has drawn on this rich history and has expanded to provide walking tours, horse drawn carriage rides and tours along with other tourist and transportation services tailored to meet the needs of both local community members and our visiting tourist population.
Our staff have decades of experience providing these services and are proud to showcase Beechworth and the entire Indigo region to visitors who wish to join us in celebrating the Indigo Experience!
