Jill and Pete's facinating tour of Bendigo's history and significant landmarks recommence from October 1, 2020.
Ranked number 2 of tours in Bendigo on Trip Advisor.
Join us for an outdoor, guided walking tour through Bendigo’s historic centre and 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 people, events and unprecedented wealth that built ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ shaping a new nation. 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. Visitors, new residents, even long-time locals are welcome to enjoy an upbeat, informal guided walk in this extraordinary city.
