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.
