The architect Vahland had designs to make Bendigo a "Vienna of the south" by encouraging European artisans to immigrate to the city.
Venture out of the city with trips to Spas & Wellness (in Daylesford), Echuca (The Great Aussie Beer Shed, Port of Echuca Discovery Centre, & more) and Ballarat (Chinese Open Monument, Sovereign Hill, & more). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Bendigo Art Gallery, admire all the interesting features of Central Deborah Gold Mine, admire the striking features of Sacred Heart Cathedral, and contemplate the long history of Eaglehawk Log Lock Up.
