Two Day Arts and Culture Getaway


The whole family will adore beautiful Rosalind Park – 60 acres of grassy open spaces, lush leafy trees, a fabulous playground, ornate statues, an historic conservatory, a fernery and beautiful old gardens to explore, located on the edge of the Bendigo CBD.

  • Cycling & Walking Trails

The hammies will be aching after a day on one of many Bendigo cycling and walking tracks. Pace yourself riding or walking on the oh-so-civilised suburban Linear Trail, or go all Tough Mudder on the Goldfields Track; a 210-kilometre mountain bike trail following the old gold route between Bendigo and Ballarat.

  • Playgrounds and Play Centres

Bendigo takes playtime seriously, so much so that the city has invested millions into a host of one-off, custom-designed playgrounds that pay homage to literature, culture and endless family fun.

The whimsical Bendigo Botanic Gardens playground was inspired by Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland. Little ones can play kings and queens on the throne chairs, croquet on the rolly-polly lawn and mad hatters on the mushroom furniture. There’s a secret garden and hidden mirror for extra fun.

  • Free Things to Do with Kids

Holidays can be expensive but there are plenty of ways to enjoy fun family time in Bendigo that won’t break the bank.

Active families should definitely bring their bikes along for the ride. There are networks of safe cycling tracks traversing the city that pass by some of Bendigo’s best attractions. Take the Bendigo Creek Trail past Lake Weeroona and Rosalind Park for a backroad view of the suburbs. The more adventurous riders should head straight to the O’Keefe Rail Trail; a 49km path between Bendigo and Heathcote, past forest, farmland, the Campaspe River and Lake Eppalock.

  • Educational Excursions

If you’re looking for a new destination for your annual school camp, Bendigo offers an untapped array of educational experiences only two hours from Melbourne.

Our trams have been entwined with the Bendigo’s identity since 1890 and are a must for all itineraries.
