Bendigo is one of regional Australia’s

grandest cities. It is also a modern

thriving city of over 100,000 that

lends itself to business, sporting, cultural

and recreational pursuits.

Our natural attractions and facilities are first class and our

residents are warm and welcoming.

Located in the exact centre of the state, Bendigo is set in

an environment of natural Australian bush land with some

of the most interesting flora and Box Ironbark Forests to

be found in Victoria.

It is only a short drive, less than 90 minutes from

Melbourne’s International Airport, has regular airport bus

transfers and hourly train services.

Bendigo is also a city open for business and features

a diverse range of venues with the ability to host your

conference, convention, seminar, trade show or other

special event.

It is our wonderful combination of food, wine,

accommodation, attractions, shopping, cultural, recreation

and sporting facilities that help make Bendigo a great city

in which to live, work, visit and play.

Events: a growing

industry for Bendigo

Bendigo is one of Victoria’s key tourism destinations. This is

not surprising given its central location, close proximity to

airports, magnificent history and diverse range of cultural

experiences on offer to visitors.

These attributes are also highly desirable for those in

event management, and increasingly Bendigo is emerging

as a key destination for national and international events.

Events play a significant role in economies – major and

business events are worth an estimated $2.4 billion to

the State of Victoria. And this figure continues to grow.

In addition, the associated employment and business

opportunities from events are also significant in sectors

including accommodation, retail, transport and hospitality.

Already Bendigo has demonstrated a strong capability

and talent for major events. Key art exhibitions such as the

Golden Age of Couture and the Archibald highlight this.

Events are a growing industry, and potentially a lucrative

and exciting industry sector for Bendigo to capitalise on.

I congratulate the City on achievements in the events

space so far and encourage you to use these successes as

platform to secure future major and business events.

regional galleries in Australia.

earth and walk in the footsteps

of the miners. Enjoy drinks below

an adventure.

Diversity characterises nightlife in

Bendigo. Pubs, clubs, live music

venues and lounges can be found in

the heart of the city. Bendigo’s gold

mining history ensures that there is a

pub on nearly every corner ranging

from the intimate to contemporary

where you can meet friendly locals

in a casual environment and enjoy a

hearty meal.

Take a journey aboard Bendigo’s

ninesevensix for an unforgettable

tramcar dining experience.

Retaining its original number “976”,

this beautifully refurbished 1952

Melbourne W-class tram brings

together the stunning views, food

and wine.

Set in a beautifully restored

1876 classical style building Wine

Bank on View offers an extensive

range of quality wine and food.

Experience the ambience and

sample the fantastic range of

regional wines which can be

purchased at great prices.

Enjoy theatre, music, dance or

comedy at The Capital – Bendigo’s

Performing Arts Centre. The centre

hosts almost 200 live shows each

year, featuring some of Australia’s

finest performers.

appreciate the adjacent secure,

undercover multi storey car-park

available to our guests.

Weddings are also a speciality

when it comes to turning a day

into a memory. With friendly

start. Getting high might just be the perfect

way for your delegates to spend their

down time.

talked out, they

can sit back,

relax and let the

talking. Bendigo’s

A visit to the famous Bendigo Pottery,

Australia’s oldest working pottery and home

to a number of heritage-listed beehive kilns is

and have their fired pieces delivered to their

home. There is also an interpretive museum,

café and gallery.

www.bendigopottery.com.au

A trust exercise of

epic proportions;

an underground

For many people, the weekend isn’t complete

without a visit to a market of some description

– whether it’s looking for antique glassware,

that old-fashioned rocking chair or the

perfect bunch of

organic vegies. The

Bendigo region boasts

a plethora of different

markets, offering

home-made and

second-hand goods,

local art and craft, fresh

produce, bric-a-brac

and much more.

Set in a

gorgeous

landmark

Victorian

building in

the heart of

Bendigo’s

vibrant arts

precinct, Wine Bank on View offers

Bendigo, and is the ideal place for delegates to

relax and network after a full day.

cellars, chat with

winemakers and

experience their

craft first-hand.

And best of all,

there’s no driving.

ninesevensix is undoubtedly Bendigo’s

most unique dining experience. Retaining

its original number, 976, this beautifully

refurbished 1952 Melbourne W-class tram

Bendigo’s gracious buildings at night, coupled

with a delicious four-course menu and drinks.

While they’re

not always

associated with

each other,

cycling and

wine tasting

are perfect

partners. What

better way to work off that shiraz

and cheese plate than with a leisurely pedal?

Visitors to Bendigo can choose from four

different Winery Cycle Trails, created to guide

riders to the many treasures of the renowned

wine region.

www.bendigotourism.com

Imagine literally

drifting from one

award-winning

winery to another,

tasting fine wine

and delicious

food along the

way. Bendigo

Adventures’ guided

kayaking wine tour on the Goulburn

River in the Heathcote wine region offers

tastings at Mitchelton and Tahbilk wineries

and includes lunch and transport from

Bendigo. No previous paddling experience

is required.

www.bendigoadventures.com

Cycling and walking are two of the best ways

to experience the region’s natural beauty.

Countless kilometres

of tracks and trails

interweave across the

region, with many

leading to lookouts

with breathtaking

views of the city

and surrounding

countryside. The 2-hour

Bendigo Bushland

Trail is an ideal way to

explore the local flora

and fauna.

www.bendigotourism.com

A tranquil

setting, a

superb foot rub,

a rejuvenating

facial, a head

massage.

Relaxed yet?

Your delegates

will be if

they pamper

themselves at one of Bendigo’s elegant day

spas. The historic city’s grand and gracious

setting provides the perfect backdrop for

a luxurious spa experience; after the

formalities of course.

www.silkdayspa.com.au www.spaeleven.com.au

For a complete

change of pace,

horse riding in the

Whipstick State

National Park with

the Ironbard Riding

Centre is a great

way to build team

morale. Beginners

through to

experienced riders can enjoy an early morning

trot or a late afternoon canter into the sunset.

And best of all, there’s a full stocked bar too.

Like the ubiquitous model train set, Bendigo’s

Discovery Science and Technology Centre

is essentially designed for kids, but secretly

adored by adults. Boasting the tallest vertical

slide in the southern

hemisphere, which drops

you 7m straight down at

speeds of up to 40 km/h,

and a state-of-the-art

planetarium, Discovery

is a big kids’ playground.

Corporate functions are

a specialty.

Throw your delegates into a spin with an

authentic Australian cultural experience

– learning how to throw a boomerang. In a

2-hour session with Wycheproof Boomerangs

in Bendigo, delegates can discover the

origins of

the ancient

weapon, the

secret of why

it returns; and

also create

their own

boomerang

to keep.

www.boomerangsales.com

For a genuine

first-class

experience,

you can’t go

past a classic

steam train journey;

finely restored carriages, lush, open landscape

flashing by, a glass of red and lunch or dinner.

The Victorian Goldfields Railway links the

historic towns of Castlemaine and Maldon

and runs several days a week. Timetables are

available from the Bendigo Visitor Centre.

www.vgr.com.au

With many adults often accused of behaving

like children, why not let them loose at The

Zone? A huge entertainment complex ideally

suited to corporate entertainment, The

Zone offers indoor and outdoor go-karting,

interactive laser games, mini golf, ice hockey

and paintballing, the

ideal way to identify

future leaders! Group

bookings welcome.

www.thezone.net.au

Reward your delegates for a day or night by

letting them live the life of a movie-star with

transport from one of Bendigo’s limousine

services. Take in the night-time sights with

comfort and glamour or transfer your VIP’s

from A to B in the lap of luxury.

www.yourride.net.au www.ozlimos.com.au

An early-morning round of golf can be a great

leveller and provide a relaxed opportunity

for team-building. Each of Bendigo’s

five courses

throw up their

own distinct

challenges and

pleasures, from

the undulating

greens and

granite hills to

the roaming roos

at Bendigo Golf

Club. Who’ll make

the cut?

www.bendigogolfclub.com.au

A Chinese place of worship, the Bendigo

Joss House was built in the 1860s by Chinese

migrants who came seeking their fortune

on the rugged goldfields. Constructed with

local, handmade bricks, the Joss House is one

of the few remaining original buildings of its

type in Australia and offers an insight into the

religious traditions of another culture.

www.bendigotourism.com

With its notable

collection of

important

Australian works,

significant

contemporary

collection and

recent record-

breaking international shows, such as The

Golden Age of Couture: Paris & London 1947-

57, Bendigo Art Gallery, one of the oldest and

finest regional galleries in Australia, is a “must

see” for all groups. Private, guided tours are

available. A great venue for cocktails.

www.bendigoartgallery.com.au

For those willing to

get a little dirt on

their hands, gold

prospecting in the

forests surrounding

Bendigo is an

interesting way to

spend a few hours.

Full and half-day

prospecting trips, including a

guide, transport, food and drinks and metal

detectors. Who’ll have a Eureka moment?

www.bendigotourism.com

Page 42: Business Events Bendigo - Planners Guide

Pick a skip, head to the green and play a rink

or two. Described as the “friendliest club in

town”, the Bendigo Club offers corporate

groups the chance to enjoy a social game

of the genteel sport – lawn bowls. And while

the beer’s not quite at genuine 1972 prices,

it is cold and on tap.

www.bendigoclub.com

In the state’s apple

core, the ancient

art of small-batch

cider making is

alive. Bress, an

idyllic 60-acre

biodynamic

farm at Harcourt,

produces sought-after

wines and ciders and also offers wood-fired

pizza, antipasto and cheese in a picturesque

setting. The cellar door welcomes groups by

appointment and tours of the farm can also

be arranged.

The antithesis of the adage “never judge

a book by its cover”, Bendigo’s Town Hall

is one of Victoria’s most

remarkable boom

time buildings; with

its stunning interior

features, such as

elaborate plasterwork,

extensive hand-painted

decoration and delicate

gold leafing, more than

matching its imposing

façade. Step back to a

more genteel time with a

personalised guided tour.

Bendigo Adventures coordinate and lead

fun, exciting and professional team building

events. Use one of their developed programs

or send them your ideas and they will tailor an

A 3-hour

self-drive tour,

the Tri Wine

Tour features

three wineries

located within 10

minutes drive of each other; Balgownie Estate,

Sandhurst Ridge and Connor Park. With up

to 30 wines available for tasting, it is a great

starting point for delegates to appreciate the

diversity and character

of the Bendigo wine region.

www.bendigotourism.com www.balgownieestate.com.au

From memorable reds

to crisp whites, the

region’s wines are a

delight; and touring

wineries is one of

the most popular

ways for business

visitors to spend

time away from the conference

centre. Organisers can select from a number

of touring routes, such as the Vine to Vintage

Trail, which links the Bendigo, Heathcote and

Macedon Ranges wine regions.

www.bendigowine.org.au www.heathcotewinegrowers.com.au

Even with just an hour to spare, delegates

can sample the gorgeous food and wine

of the region by following one of the city’s

food and wine itineraries. Whether it’s the

froth and bubble of a creamy cappuccino

at one of the intimate cafes or a sweet treat

from the city’s own chocolaterie, there’s

something for every taste.

www.bendigotourism.com

Rather than arrange numerous organised

tours, why not provide delegates with

a Bendigo

Experience Pass,

a handy multi-

attraction pass to

four of Bendigo’s

best attractions

at a discounted

price, and let them

relax at their own

pace? A great way

for delegates to experience Bendigo Pottery,

Central Deborah, the Golden Dragon Museum

and the Talking Tram.

www.bendigotourism.com

Visit one of Victoria’s most prestigious

racecourses – Bendigo Jockey Club, or

experience the excitement of harness racing

at Lords Raceway. With an action packed

calendar of thoroughbred and harness racing

meetings, there is always an excuse to don

a fascinator or tie, share a drink and back

your fancy. Whether entertaining guests in

a corporate marquee or thanking your staff

– it’s a great day out.

From rich, ripe reds to elegant

whites, the wines from Bendigo’s

gold-bearing soils are a wine

lover’s treasure. Consider a local

drop at your function in the region

or as a team discover rare gems

hidden in the picturesque hills

and valleys of the region.

The first vines were planted in

the region in 1856 just after the

start of the massive gold rush

which brought tens of thousands

of hopeful diggers from all over

the world.

They came with a lust for gold, but

also the wine and food knowledge

of Europe and it was only a few

years before the judges at the

1873 Vienna Exhibition were

heard to exclaim of Bendigo’s early

Hermitage that “no Colonial wine

can be that good”.

Today the Bendigo Winegrowers

have proudly placed this region

of Victoria at the centre of

winemaking excellence.

More than thirty boutique

wineries offer a welcoming cellar

door experience and chances are

you’ll even meet the winemaker

who’ll be keen to chat about the

latest vintage.

A number of wineries have dining

facilities, perfect for lunch or dinner

functions as part of your event.

– Do you require a Risk Assessment/Risk Management Plan? Ensure this assessment involves all stakeholders.

– Arrange support services and hire equipment early if required. Do you require: staging, lighting, catering, PA systems, AV equipment, portable toilets, cleaners, marquees, generators / power distribution, security, ticketing, transportation services etc.? Once arranged, book and confirm all contractors in writing.

– Do you require a Waste Management Plan including an estimate of recycling and waste bins required and their locations, cleaning and collection of waste during and post event and appointing contractors to manage waste?

– Do you need to notify Police, Ambulance Service and Fire Brigade of your event? Will your event affect Public Transport?

– Have you put in place contingency plans in case of such situations as inclement weather or low attendance?

– Ensure you develop a complete timeline of the lead up, duration and pack down of your event. Consider rehearsals, sound checks etc. Briefings with all stakeholders/staff maybe required prior to and on the day/s of the event.

– Post-event, make time to thank staff, speakers, volunteers, sponsors and performers in writing. Hold a de-brief session to look at ways of improving the event – this is your starting point for your next event.
