Bendigo Region

The Bendigo Region has emerged as a must-visit arts and cultural mecca. Regional charm meets urban sophistication in the region’s heart, Bendigo, a vibrant city filled with grand architecture, arts and culture.

In Bendigo, you can see artisans in action in their studios at Bendigo Pottery or explore the region’s rich Chinese heritage at the Golden Dragon Chinese Museum. Stroll along the View Street arts precinct where you’ll find one of Australia’s best regional galleries, the Bendigo Art Gallery, or take in a show at the historic Capital or the stunning Ulumbarra theatre, a superb piece of architecture that was once the Sandhurst Gaol.

Born out of a renowned gold boom, the Bendigo region has re-written its future by forging a must-visit arts and cultural destination.

Step outside the city and you’ll find plenty to explore across the region including an abundance of art galleries, museums and leading attractions. Must-see attractions include the magnificent Great Stupa of Universal Compassion – a landmark building rising 25 metres above Bendigo’s distinctive bushland – and a visit to the Mill Castlemaine, a creative hub of arts, cultural and food creatives. A visit to the region would not be complete without exploring the antique precinct of Inglewood, the galleries of Maryborough and participation in some of the year-round events and festivals.



The Bendigo region will capture your heart and imagination. Discover experiences and events in the region below.
