  • Went with friends while on a weekend away. Liked that you could walk around the lake. We sat down on the grass and the view was great. Nice and clean.  more »
  • We had lunch in the café at this lovely park which is such an asset to Bendigo. We saw loads of different species of birds and lots of families were having picnics.  more »
  • If you are looking for a short, medium or longer walk you cannot beat the circuit at the lake...especially at this time of year when the birdlife are all showing off their spring offspring!  more »

Where to stay in Bendigo

Just like the city itself, places to stay in Bendigo present a mix of historical and modern. The center of the city boasts a selection of hotels and apartments housed in Victorian mansions--which also happen to be some of Bendigo's main tourist attractions. Just a couple of blocks away, however, you can choose from a number of 21st-century establishments. For a more peaceful setting, venture outside the city center to find plenty of smaller bed and breakfasts and motels, as well as fully equipped RV parks and campsites.
