You love the nightlife, yeah. Just as well, because Bendigo packs weigh above its weight for after-dark adventures.
Bendigo's theatres set the stage for comedy, music, ballet, contemporary dance, community and professional plays. Have fun dressing up to attend a flash-o venue, or simply stumble as-you-are onto a live band at a Bendigo pub, club or bar. They all foster a sophisticated drinking culture of locally-brewed craft beer, regional wine and signature cocktails. Check out what's on at the theatres now.
If your inner-introvert baulks at a big night, head to a local cinema for the latest flicks and arthouse films. The Bendigo Cinema boasts a comfy-as Gold Class and out in historic Eaglehawk, the heritage town hall has the must-see Star Cinema. Think scarlet sofas, a glass of local red or a cup of coffee, and a great selection of foreign and Australian films. You’ll still get to meet the locals; they volunteer behind the box office.
