Join Jill and Pete for a two-hour guided walk through the city’s historic centre surrounded by Bendigo’s distinctive boom-style architecture.
We describe how gold and mass migration
transformed a sleepy sheep run and the land of the
Dja Dja Wurrung into the world's richest city of the 1880s.
We recall the Bendigo people, events and unprecedented wealth that built ‘Marvelous Melbourne’ and shaped a new nation and we ponder Bendigo's leading role in campaigns for democracy, votes for women, unionism and Federation.
From radicals to royalty, larrikins to leaders, enjoy the quirky, remarkable, often forgotten stories of Bendigo.
Visiting, new to Bendigo or a long-time local - enjoy an upbeat, informal guided walk in this extraordinary city.
