Things to do in Bendigo with kids

Who’s excited about Bendigo! This vibrant Australian town has an amazing history. Ever since it was put on the map by the gold rush over 150 years ago, this fascinating city moved from tents to grand designs, which led into an amazing town that makes sure there are plenty of things to do with kids!

Did you know Bendigo was the first Australian city that has been recognised as a UNICEF child friendly city? Pretty amazing! Maybe that’s because of the very cool Vintage Talking Tram Tour, or the Bendigo FUN Factory!

Feeling hot? Just as well there is Bendigo Water World! Kids can experiment and learn with science at Discovery Bendigo, and the very historic Victorian Goldfields Railway will give kids a great insight into the incredible past!  Want more history? How about underground with Central Deborah Goldmine!?

Active kids will love The Zone Family Entertainment Complex, and creative kids are covered with places like Bendigo Pottery!

Phew! We see why it’s an AWARD WINNING city for kids!
