Bendigo Region

Arts lovers from around the country are flocking to Bendigo – a vibrant regional city where historic charm fuses with urban sophistication.

Designated a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy, Bendigo is home to world-class culinary experiences as well as must-see arts and architecture. Explore the charms of View Street, Bendigo’s beating heart for more than two centuries. One of Australia’s most successful regional galleries, the Bendigo Art Gallery, is home to world-renowned exhibitions and programs.

The gallery is in good company, with the historic Capital Theatre next door and La Trobe Arts Institute across the road where you’ll find contemporary art pieces. Eclectic vintage stores, cafes and bars complete the experience.

And if beautiful scenery and historic buildings aren’t already enough to capture your attention, the region’s artists have made it more colourful adding their own creative touches all over the city. Chancery Lane is a tiny laneway full of colour and life, while the Bath Lane precinct is an enclave of historic foundations and creative spaces.

Cultural attractions are also in abundance in this diverse city: The Golden Dragon Chinese Museum, award-winning historic trams, The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion and the Joss House – just a few of the must-dos.



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