Bendigo

Understand

Bendigo grew to a bustling town during the Gold Rush Era of the 1850s.

An influx of people from the city has brought the population of Bendigo to roughly 90 thousand in recent years. Even so it still retains a good friendly country atmosphere.

The climate is very kind and the town has more sunny days per year than Queensland. Being north of the Great Dividing Range, it has also far less rain than Melbourne. Summers are hot and dry, up to 40 degrees Celsius or more on some days. Winters tend to be mild; with lowest temperatures around -5 degrees celsius during the night or 14 during days.

Sheep, cattle, fruit, wine and cereal crops are the most common products of the area. Gold is being discovered again in large quantities at deeper levels in the old mines with new technology and promises a wealthy future.

A large Chinese community established itself during the early days of the gold rush and still play a large role in local ceremonies.
