A FORMER Beechworth tourism identity yesterday pleaded guilty at the Wodonga Magistrates Court to performing an indecent act on a child under the age of 16. 

Adam Wynne-Jenkins, 35, formerly of Beechworth, also pleaded guilty to a Commonwealth charge of using a carriage service to groom a child under the age of 16 for sexual acts in the future.

A clean-shaven Wynne-Jenkins appeared in court before magistrate Stella Stuthridge. 

He was further bailed to County Court sittings that begin in Wodonga on April 29.

Wynne-Jenkins was the operator and tour guide for the popular Beechworth Ghost Tours, but is no longer with the company.

He also co-ordinated the Ned Kelly Weekend festival in the town, which re-enacted the arrival of Kelly and his committal hearing in the Beechworth Courthouse.

Wynne-Jenkins had been the founding president of the Beechworth Historical Re-enactment Group.
