Hey there,

There are quite a few places will be perfect for your family to stay at, contact the Visitor Centre on 1800 813 153 or check out www.bendigotourism.com, the staff will be more than happy to give your some recommendation on accommodations.

Must do attractions! Make sure you go to the Central Deborah Goldmine and go underground! You can also catch the Vintage Tram from the Mine and stroll around the beautiful city! Drive to Bendigo Pottery, join the wheel-throwing class and make your own pottery! Pay a visit to the Golden Dragon museum and learn the Chinese History in this great city. Go for a walk at Rosalind Park or visit many of the beautiful heritage sites! And make sure you stop at Bendigo Art Gallery!

There are lots of different places to dine in. Depends on the type of food you are after :) Check out the dining shopping guide at issuu.com/bendigotourism/docs/3477_cogb_bend…

Hope this help!

Will you have a car?

If yes, just pick a good value motel anywhere in Bendigo or its surrounding suburbs. If not, I recommend staying as close to the city centre as possible. Indeed do go and do the talking tram tour and the Central Deborah underground tour. There are lots of dining options, some better some worse, just like anywhere. JoJoe's is a fair compromise. Café style menu including pizzas in a decent sized restaurant.
