Bendigo Walking Tours – With a Touch of Royalty


Join Jill and Pete for a two-hour guided walk through the city’s historic centre surrounded by Bendigo’s distinctive boom-style architecture.

From radicals to royalty, larrikins to leaders, enjoy the quirky, remarkable, often forgotten stories of Bendigo.

In celebration of the Bendigo Art Gallery exhibition ‘Tudors to Windsors,’ we’ve taken our most popular historic guided walk and included the highs, the hiccups and the hilarious from the eight Royal tours to Bendigo since the strife ridden first visit in 1867.

What were the only 10 words spoken by Prince Albert when he officially opened the Alexandra Fountain in 1881?

Which local hotel has been rebuilt three times and served as an unofficial Government House?

And who, in 1887 was horsewhipped for referring to the Queen as "an obese old woman fond of whisky"?

Find out these answers and so much more as you walk in the footsteps of the Royals and explore 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 'Marvellous Melbourne' and shaped a new nation; describing Bendigo's leading role in campaigns for democracy and Federation.

Enjoy an upbeat, informal guided walk in this extraordinary city.
