  • As soon as you arrive here, you can feel the welcoming and peaceful nature of the Stupa. The Stupa itself is incredible and the gardens and surrounds are equally as calming and relaxing. You soon forget all the stresses of the world! We have been here multiple times now, and it is great seeing the developments over time. This is an amazing place and it will only get better as it gets closer to completion.
  • The relics and exhibits are amazing! The tour guides are very friendly and insightful. The compound itself is very serene and breath taking. It was unfortunate that the stupa is not completed yet making it less impactful on the overall experience.
  • large stupa and some nice buddha statues.
  • Peaceful and beautiful - will only grow more so with time. Friendly visitor centre with guided tours.
  • An amazing sight to behold and the peaceful atmosphere is just beautiful

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.
