Where to stay in Bendigo

Exploring Bendigo

Situated around 150 kilometres northwest of Melbourne and surrounded by a picturesque valley, Bendigo is a major centre for heritage and cultural tourists. It is filled with beautiful Victorian-era architecture, many examples of which are on the Victorian Heritage Register, including the Bendigo Town Hall, Fortuna Villa and the Shamrock Hotel, which is still open today. All of these historical buildings were built by architect William Charles Vahland, along with plenty of others, transforming the city into the grand city that it is today.

Bendigo is also home to the lovely Rosalind Park, a Victorian-style garden found right in the city centre. Walk up the adjacent Camp Hill to Poppet Head Lookout for some scenic views of the region. Lake Weeroona makes up the northeast corner of the city and is next to the Bendigo Botanical Gardens. The lake and gardens are home to ducks, purple swamp hens, owls and lizards as well as numerous other native animal species, and a visit here makes for a pleasant afternoon.
