Travel Tips from people who've been to Bendigo
Bendigo is a charming and elegant rural centre with an economy which is driven by a mixture of tourism, industry and servicing the surrounding agricultural district. The Bendigo Easter Fair, operating since 1871 and climaxing with a famous parade featuring historic Chinese processional dragons, is a popular annual event, as is the NEC Bendigo Cup in November. The Australian Sheep and Wool Show is held on the third or fourth weekend in July each year.
A visit to the Bendigo Cathedral is a must - beautiful architechture, it is free but a donation is appreciated
thought this place was cool when i was younger... havent been back since though!
