4 dining & shopping guide


Bendigo is at the heart

of Central Victoria

It is here one of the world’s

greatest gold rushes

occurred. People from across

the globe converged on the

region, seeking their fortune.

Yet in recent years, the

sublime granite-strewn

landscapes of these quaint

country towns have attracted

a new breed of creative tree

changers.

They have passion and

experience in art, design,

food and wine, and are

contributing to, and leading

a transformation in Bendigo

and its surrounds.

There has been a

rejuvenation of the beautiful

heritage buildings, parks

and gardens, and urban

landscapes of the city.

What were once banks and

building societies, are now

home to award-winning

restaurants and new vogue

wine bars.

What used to be primarily

farming communities are

now home to some of

the finest vineyards in the

country.

bendigotourism.com 5


6 dining & shopping guide


Bendigo is one of the

richest regions of

boutique food and wine

producers in Australia

Dining

Discover quaint

contemporary cafes in old

corner shops, and restaurants

tucked away in Europeaninspired

laneways.

Fine dining in former goldrush

era buildings, and

historic hotels forging ahead

with contemporary food

creations.

Dining is an experience to be

savoured. Produce is proudly

sourced locally.

The region’s fodder, natural

and seasonal, fills the shelves

of the city’s grocers, butchers,

fruiterers and delicatessens.

Heroes include beef, pork,

chicken, eggs, apples, micro

herbs and olives.

The Bendigo and Heathcote

wine regions boast more

than 60 boutique cellar doors

producing international

award-winning vintages,

including shiraz, cabernet

sauvignon and innovative

blends.

shopping

Bendigo is a retail hub

on all scales

Famous national brands

began here. Jimmy Possum

and Myer grew from humble

and proud beginnings within

the city walls.

Quirky shops have sprung

up awakening a passion for

cottage industry.

Boutiques house clothing

and creations by the region’s

renowned artisans, designers

and craftspeople. The city is

also leading the retro revival.

Stockers of vintage and

antique furniture and

clothing provide a gold mine

for modern-day treasure

hunters.

Discover laneway shopping in

modest spaces. Think unique

threads, contemporary

homewares and precious

jewellery.

Passionate fashionistas and

designers use their styling

magic to transform you and

your home.
