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.

  • 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.
  • Peaceful and beautiful - will only grow more so with time. Friendly visitor centre with guided tours.
  • Very impressive, still a work in progress but they have a vision of where its going and its going to be a while before they get there, but isn't that part of the journey. the tour guide Rhonda was excellent and very patient with all our questions. The great Stupa at the moment is only available while on the tour but that happens on a regular basis. The gardens are going to be super impressive. Overall, a very informative and easy introduction to Buddhism and the meaning of the Stupa. No pressure by anyone, in fact several monks went out of their way to say Happy Easter to everyone.
  • Very quiet and peaceful place
