Always having a finger on the pulse, Bendigo Tourism has provided us with a network of like-minded businesses committed to increasing visitor numbers, extending the length of stay and repeat visitations. There is such an amazing quality and variety of attractions throughout the area. Coming from Loddon, it has been a great bonus for us to work and be included with the larger Bendigo region and give back as an ambassador.
