beautifully decorated spaces all adds to a sense of homeliness, privacy and

What do I need to know about staying in Bendigo?
Situated in Victoria, Australia, approximately 93
miles North West of the larger city of Melbourne, Bendigo has a population of
around 95,000. This makes it the fourth-largest inland city in Australia, and
although a relatively new city (thanks to the discovery of gold in its soils in
the 1850s) Bendigo has a rich culture and economy which attracts many business
travellers from across the world.
Bendigo is served by its own small airport, with flights
running between Sydney and the city several times a week. Alternatively, entry
to the city can be made via the Calder Freeway which links to Melbourne. The
city is also connected via rail, with the Bendigo line running south to Melbourne
and north to multiple other lines. The CBD of the city is where the majority of
the bus services run from, whereas a few trams still run, but mainly catering
to tourists and not to the general population for convenient public
Though typically warm as you would expect from an
Australian city, Bendigo is cooler than its coastal counterparts, with the average
high temperature being in February at just 19 degrees. Lows in July are usually
around 9 degrees.
