Oh, this place is rich alright! We’re talking history so rich it’s indulgent. But what else would you expect from a city made of old money? Where 19th century sandstone giants are a daily reminder of our gold digger past. We’ve put together some nifty tours of the Bendigo heritage highlights, from grand public buildings to our 1860s clink – it once hosted bed and breakfast for Ned Kelly!
Go back to the future in Bendigo. We may not have a Delorean, but we do have a fleet of retro trams for a spot of time travelling on well-worn tracks.
Head on down to the Central Deborah Gold Mine. Up to 228 metres down below ground. It’s positively dark and broody.
Craft yourself a spiffy vase or bowl and help continue more than 150 unbroken years of production at the Bendigo Pottery.
As you can see, there’s nothing nanna about Bendigo’s heritage. Although you may want to take yours to the Golden Dragon Chinese Museum to meet Sun Loong. All ages love the world’s longest imperial dragon.
What else? Hot foot it on a walking tour around old gold streets, explore the stunning Sacred Heart Cathedral. Or pick up our heritage brochure to design your own itinerary. Find them in the Bendigo Information Centre – once the city’s historic post office. It’s very posh.
