Loving Central Victoria

It's the enviable lifestyle and low cost of living that sets Central Victoria apart.

Bendigo is surrounded by 31 vineyards and boutique wineries which produce some of the country's best wines, and has an emerging foodie culture thanks to genuine farmers' markets and passionate local producers.

The finer things in life matter too. Bendigo is home to one of Australia's finest and oldest regional art galleries, which boasts a stunning collection of important Australian and international work. The massively successful Golden Age of Couture exhibition put it on the map. A number of award-winning restaurants are also making a name for themselves.
