About the area

Bendigo is a city in regional Victoria, approximately 150km north west of Melbourne. It is the fourth largest inland city in Australia, with a population forecasted to reach 115,025 by 2017, with an annual growth of more than 1,700 additional residents, a rate of growth faster than the Victorian average. Bendigo is the third largest concentrated economic base in Victoria, with a rich and diverse architectural heritage, which is a major feature of the city’s liveability. Preservation of the outstanding collection of historic buildings, places and mining relics is a priority for the city’s council. Much of the area, however, is national parkland and there is a substantial farming industry. Monash and La Trobe University both have a campus in Bendigo, as does Bendigo TAFE and the Bendigo School of Nursing. There are a variety of museums and art galleries as well as gardens, providing a good mix of recreational pursuits for locals and tourists alike.
