Blues Tram and Underground Banquet

Discover Bendigo’s new gold! Celebrate with us, cruising historic streetscapes on board the Bendigo Blues Tram, a restored 1920s charter tram, while listening to sublime musical talent before returning to our local ‘rock star’ restaurant for Friday dinner or Sunday lunch.
Blues in motion, fine food and grand history are all part of this experience. Begin with a beverage at ‘Rocks’, before ambling down to the Bendigo Blues Tram to experience an up-close-and-personal performance by one of Victoria’s finest contemporary blues artists. Returning to the restaurant, feast on six shared savoury dishes and a dessert selection to die for.
Ticket includes a pre-dinner beverage, tram tour with live music, Friday dinner or Sunday lunch (with second beverage) and blues artist. (Additional beverages available for purchase.)
Regional Worlds Longest Lunch – Bendigo
Date: 31 March
Beneath the canopy of heritage trees in Bendigo’s Rosalind Park the Bendigo Winegrowers' Association will present six courses of regionally sourced food prepared by Wine Bank on View, each course matched with our regional wines chosen by a panel of home-grown sommeliers and wine aficionados.
Bendigo’s soil once provided the city's wealth through gold. Today, that same soil is helping to produce the rich diversity of wine and food to be unveiled at our annual World’s Longest Lunch. Meet the makers and enjoy this tantalising wine and food experience in one of Victoria’s grandest cities.
Take your place next to one of the local producers who have crafted the wine and food you will be served; their stories will give you a sense of local identity and community as you enjoy the lunch they have helped create..
