About Greater Bendigo

Greater Bendigo is one of Australia’s largest inland cities, supporting a local population of 112,000 and regional population of close to 240,000. Our location in the geographic centre of Victoria is two hours from Melbourne by road or train and a 90-minute drive from Melbourne Airport.

Bendigo has a fascinating history and was once one of the richest cities in the world after gold was discovered here in 1851. The impact of the gold rush is still evident today, particularly through our beautiful streetscapes and historic buildings.
