Bendigo is the 4th largest city in the state of Victoria, with a rich and thriving heritage dating back to the times when gold was discovered in this region in the 1850s. Since then, the town has been the 2nd largest producing goldfield in Australia and remains the 7th largest world-wide.
Bendigo’s prosperous and rich gold history has produced a city of great opulence and grandeur. Amazing architecture, beautifully decorated gardens and the Alexandra Fountain at the entrance to the town center are all symbolic of Bendigo. The city lies in a fertile valley, encircled by many hilly suburbs featuring wide tree-lined streets, bush land, and some large reserves, all these creating a nice and pleasant green environment for the residents of the city, as well as for visitors. There are many lakes and reservoirs located within the city borders, including the most central - Lake Weeroona, which is encircled by beautiful gardens and parkland.
Some of the attractions for city-guests include the Central Deborah Mine complex, which offers underground mine tours and the Talking Tram which takes passengers on an almost five km journey throughout many of Bendigo’s attractions. Rosalind Park, in the downtown, features a lookout tower, which provide visitors with amazing views across the city, while Bendigo’s Sacred Heart Cathedral, erected in 1896 is the largest Gothic cathedral in the southern hemisphere. In this city, one will find and several art galleries as well as the Golden Dragon Museum - a tribute to the city’s long history and relationship with Chinese people and culture.
