  • A wonderful place. That will soon become an important landmark, a tourist destination and place if pilgrimage for Buddhists and seekers of all stripes
  • 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.
  • A must go for all. I wanted to spend a day there. Will be going back.

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.
