Bendigo, Victoria

Bendigo has many beautiful historical buildings. Due to lack of public money being available earlier on, many of these valuable old buildings escaped being replaced by expensive modern buildings. Above is the Regional Arts Centre with its Doric columns.

The Shamrock Hotel built in 1897 and restored by State funds. Described as one of the most historically significant buildings in Victoria.

Old tram circa 1910. Bendigo successfully argued that these old trams and the tramlines be preserved and they run as "Talking Trams" taking tourists around the significant sights of the town.

Cafe on the banks of Lake Weerona, an artificial lake built here many many years ago. Not only in Canberra...................
