Why you should come to Bendigo this long weekend

Don't just sit around on the couch binge-watching Netflix this long weekend.There's plenty happening right here in Bendigo to tempt everyone…

Love a good market? Who doesn't?! What if I tell you there are three markets on this weekend in Bendigo and surrounds – all a must do!

- Friday night take the short drive to Heathcote to visit their twilight market starting from 5pm. Meet and greet the makers and sample local wine, craft beer and produce from the region, plus other delicious treats, arts and crafts, family friendly activities and entertainment.

- On Saturday, spend your morning at the Bendigo Community Farmers Market at Bendigo Sidney Myer Place from 9am to 1pm. Talk to passionate growers and producers while stocking up on fresh, seasonal produce straight from the source.

For those who love a good food truck, handmade gifts, fashion, live music and a moonlight bar (I know, sounds good right?!) The Moonlight Market is on Saturday evening.

​Love the great outdoors and your sports? We've got you covered! Don't miss the Bendigo International Madison where high speed changes, crashes and world class athletes take centre stage at Tom Flood Arena. Sunday will see AFL pre-season football return to Bendigo QEO where Geelong will take on Essendon. A showdown you don't want to miss! 

Love the arts? Bendigo is the place to be! Visit the recently opened exhibition, Collective Vision: 130 Years at Bendigo Art Gallery. And drop into Gallery 369 and Arnold Street Gallery to see their latest exhibits. For a little art x fashion, pay a visit to Bendigo Living Arts Space and to see the Ag Art Wear exhibition. 

mmm paella! Yes, please! Check out Chancery Lane on Saturday where El Gordo will be cooking up a paella storm from 12pm. Make sure you explore the laneway while you are there, and yes a cocktail is on the must do list!
