Bendigo one of Victoria’s largest rural cities

Posted by Jeremy Storer on October 27, 2010

Bendigo is located in the north west of Victoria, one of Victoria’s largest regional cities. With its central location grab a cheap car rental and tour many rural areas of Australia including southern New South Wales and the Murray-Darling basin, Australia’s food bowl. This inland city has a gold rush heritage and major attractions include Central Deborah Gold Mine, Golden Dragon Museum and the Bendigo Tramways.

Visit the Central Deborah gold mine which provides a tour of the underground of Bendigo giving you a taste of what it was like to work as a miner. Descending to 85 meters underground, be prepared to dress like a miner with a miners hat and work a mine drill.
