Top 10 Things to Do in Bendigo during Summer

Summer is almost here! We asked our locals what are the Top 10 things they like to do in summer, here they are.

• Kick back a few at a beer garden and enjoy some live tunes, our pick: The Goldmines Hotel and the Handle Bar where craft beer is flowing.

• Ice-cream! Two scoop minimum I say! Our pick? Favourite Flavours is our top pick and trust me, you won't be disappointed! 

• Embrace your inner artist! Visit air-conditioned Bendigo Art Gallery or watch an amazing performance at The Capital or Ulumbarra Theatre.

• Go underground at Central Deborah Gold Mine where it's cool 24/7. You might even have to pack a jumper!

• Stay cool at Lake Eppalock; bring your fishing rod, banana boat and your favourite togs (no skinny dipping)! 

• Who can say no to a good picnic or BBQ? Our pick: Rosalind Park for picnic, Lake Weeroona or Bendigo Botanic Gardens for a good old Aussie barbie! Local produce on the menu? Yes please.

• Ladies! Shop till you drop before a relaxing pampering sesh. An espresso martini is a must do with your BFF, no sharing of course.

• Alfresco dining by night with a glass of champers along our historic streetscape.

• Ride like Cadel Evans! We have cycling trails tailored to all fitness levels! Need a bike? No problems – bike hire available!

Many of our attractions have amazing school holiday programs and experience, make sure you check them out.

And of course don't forget our Summer in the Parks program! Pop Up cinema, music in the parks, are we ticking all the boxes yet?
