Rosalind Park, Bendigo

4.6
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Bendigo
Set some time aside for a picnic at Rosalind Park, a Victorian-style garden featuring a number of decorative statues and a large stone viaduct. The main entrance of the park is located on the intersection called Charing Cross, which was once a meeting point for two main city tram lines. This important road junction features a large statue of Queen Victoria and the ornate Alexandra Fountain, built in 1881. The park rises up toward Camp Hill, which includes a lookout tower, a popular spot for family photographs with the city’s skyline as background. Join a "Discovery Walk" through the sprawling park to enjoy its many green open spaces, lush trees, old gardens, fernery, and a historic conservatory.

  • The views from the top of the poppet head tower in Rosiland Park are amazing. Go just before sunset and watch the sunlight shifting across the buildings in town. The best colours in the sky are always about 10 minutes after the sun sinks below the horizon. A perfect spot to spend a summer evening
  • Really pretty park in the city centre. Currently beautiful garden beds of wonderfully coloured tulips, and lovely wide walking paths. A lovely central conservatory glasshouse, and access via tram or car or foot. Immediately opposite the iconic central fountain, which is currently being renovated and upgraded, and surrounded by interesting shops and restaurants and bars and local sites such as the Bendigo Art Gallery etc. So interesting. Have a wander.
  • Great place to sit and relax. Went to carols there. Was plenty of space to enjoy some christmas carols.
  • Peaceful park in the heart of the city. Perfect for picnics or short walks or be lost with a good book. Grey headed flying foxes are also in the area.
  • Most beautiful park huge old trees beautiful lawns and seating areas. Many different plants and areas to walk through .

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.
