    you have really gone into detail there lol, let me see ummm.



    The City of Greater Bendigo is one of Victoria’s largest and most progressive regional municipalities with a population of over 94,600 people.



    Located in the exact geographic centre of Victoria, only 90 minutes from Melbourne, Bendigo is a modern, thriving city with a bustling local economy featuring a mild climate. Bendigo boasts fantastic restaurants, great shopping, acclaimed wineries, exciting attractions, glorious streetscapes, wonderful parks and gardens, magnificent heritage buildings, and best of all - a great lifestyle!





    Accommodation Information



    Bendigo spoils visitors with accommodation options. There is something to suit all styles, needs and budgets. An abundance of quality motels, caravan parks, serviced apartments, self-contained cottages and B&B’s make for an easy and enjoyable stay.







    Today many gracious manors built in the gold rush era, house some of the city's most charming hideaways. The new custodians of these magnificent buildings are adding flair to the historic landmarks.



    You can relax in contemporary-styled serviced apartments and feel far away. You can pamper yourself in a luxury hotel or motel suite, and enjoy the ultimate in indulgence. Or for a more homely stay with the locals, try one of our popular and charming Bed and Breakfast gems - either in a city or rural setting.



    For families, the motels across the city offer the best facilities and are conveniently located, or perhaps a self-contained unit would be the perfect holiday answer. If camping and caravanning are what you like best - then we've got some of the best parks in the state!



    Quality motels with facilities for dining and conferencing make Bendigo an attractive destination for groups and business events. Also appealing is the fact that there is a large accommodation capacity in Bendigo.



    We operate a free Accommodation Booking Service to assist in your planning and offer an online accommodation booking service as part of this website. If you need support or assistance in booking your accommodation, our free accommodation booking service number is 1800 813 153. This service is available seven days a week.







    Attractions & Tours





    A true Bendigo highlight is the range of quality experiences and things to do. Our major attractions are diverse and exciting. There’s the authentic deep-shaft mine experience at Central Deborah, where you travel underground in a miners’ cage. The famous Vintage Talking Tram Tour that weaves through the streets of Bendigo, telling wonderful stories of days gone by.



    The original 1860’s Chinese Joss House and the Golden Dragon Museum display the Chinese heritage of the area and house the world’s oldest Imperial Dragon, Loong. Bendigo Art Gallery has a strong reputation with a significant collection. An award-winning architecturally designed café was added to the building in recent times.



    The Bendigo Pottery is famous, with its display and sales complex set around vast old beehive kilns. Dozens of smaller studios and galleries in Bendigo profile artists of the region. For the curious at heart, there’s a great experience for you at Confectionary Capers. A guided tour of Bendigo’s magnificent Town Hall is a must.



    For the active there is Australia’s highest Vertical Slide at Discovery Science & Technology Centre and a host of physical challenges at Life Adventure Park. For an even more active visit try a walking trail or cycling trail through Bendigo's fabulous city centre or beyond. A bush-walk through the tranquil Whipstick Forest, fossicking for gold near historic Maldon or cycling around beautiful wineries on route to Castlemaine could be for you.







    Wine



    Bendigo - The Winemakers’ Region



    Bendigo’s rich goldfields heritage of magnificent public buildings and quaint miners’ cottages is matched by its abundance of award-winning wines. From robust, fully-flavoured reds to elegant whites, the wines from Bendigo’s gold-bearing soils are a wine lover’s treasure.



    The first grapes were planted in the region in 1856 just after the start of the massive gold rushes which brought tens of thousands of hopeful diggers from all over the world to seek their fortunes.



    They brought with them a lust for gold, but also the wine and food knowledge of Europe and it was only a few years before the judges at the 1873 Vienna Exhibition were heard to exclaim of Bendigo's early Hermitage that "no Colonial wine can be that good". Today the Bendigo Winemakers have proudly placed this region of Victoria at the centre of a new winemaking excellence.



    Regular visitors to the region fondly refer to it as “The Winemakers’ Region”, knowing it is not uncommon to meet the winemakers, sleeves rolled up, tending vines or working in the winery. Cellar door outlets are frequently run by members of the family and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. You are bound to find the experience of Bendigo’s wine and food is pure gold.











    ok thats a little about bendigo lol



    Glistening fangs and gleaming claws,
    Teeth that pierce and jaws like saws,
    Its blood red eyes that pierce the moon,
    My fate is awaiting it will be here soon.
