The business of death – that is, the protocols for managing human death, as well as its associated rituals and practices – has been a part of civic life in Bendigo since the city’s earliest days.Read More
The Post Office Gallery interprets the Bendigo’s rich and dynamic history. It hosts a changing annual exhibition program of collections, artefacts and material that explores the history of the region.
The Gallery is housed in the grand former Post Office building, in the heart of town on Pall Mall.
We are open every day (except Christmas Day) 9am-5pm.
The Sandhurst Public Offices on Pall Mall were built during the city’s prosperous gold era and officially opened on 30 September 1887. This grand Renaissance Revival-style building operated as the city’s post office for over a century, until Australia Post moved into their new city facility at the corner of Williamson and Hargreaves streets in 1996.
The former Post Office building is also home to Bendigo’s tourist information centre.
Bendigo is known for its heritage and culture. The city’s attractions include the Capital Theatre, the Golden Dragon Museum, the Central Deborah Mine and Bendigo Tramway’s Talking Trams.
