Jill and Pete’s fascinating tour of Bendigo’s history and landmarks is back.
Our popular two-hour outdoor tour weaving through Bendigo’s historic CBD streetscapes and stunning parks and gardens is now running on our winter schedule – Thursdays to Sundays - other days by arrangement.

Description

About the two-hour tour
We describe how gold and mass migration transformed a sleepy sheep run and land of the Dja Dja Wurrung into the world's richest city of the 1880s.
We recall the Bendigo people, events and fabulous wealth that built 'Marvellous Melbourne' and shaped a new nation.
We explore Bendigo's role in campaigns for democracy, votes for women, trade unionism and Federation.
Our stories range from radicals to royalty, larrikins to leaders and include the quirky, remarkable, sometimes humorous, often forgotten, but always intriguing stories of our city.

Where do we walk?
Our two-hour tour starts at the Bendigo Conservatory adjoining Pall Mall and moves through the former Government Camp covering a distance of less than a kilometre and finishes at the top of View St next to the Bendigo Art Gallery.
