Bendigo - Victoria's Coolest Town
It's the Place to be – and it's 150 kilometres from Melbourne

The Age Sign Bendigo: Victoria's Coolest TownSaturday's Age Life and Style lift out (August 25, 2012) was certainly a great read with 2 articles focusing on the food and wine scene in Bendigo and another article on 6 Reasons to Visit Heathcote.

The 3 page feature article written by Richard Cornish who is a passionate foodie has certainly discovered Bendigo saying:

"Now, with its thriving arts and food scene, Bendigo is vying for the mantle of 2012's coolest Victorian country town. Five years ago, you couldn't get a decent coffee – let alone bubbly at a hip bar – and only the most dedicated arts patrons travelled the 150 kilometres from Melbourne to visit the gallery."

The other full page article by Age writer Gabriella Coslovich showcased Tim Baxter's Dispensary Enoteca in Dispensary Lane ending the article with – "This place rocks!"

Bendigo has been propelled into the food and wine space like never before.
