May 2019, Bendigo, Vic
The grand city of Bendigo developed after the discovery of gold in Central Victoria in 1851. Today it is a bustling city of close to 100,000 people with sprawling developing suburbs, and evocative names like Kangaroo Flat and Eaglehawk are now home to the ‘golden arches’ rather than gold diggings. The handsome architecture is warm and welcoming even on a cold day. We never need an excuse to return to Bendigo.
