    I wouldn’t have thought Bendigo had retained so much of its history. I love the idea of starting with a mine tour to better appreciate the significance of the gold rush era to the city, followed by the vintage tram tour. Thank goodness Josh House Temple was saved from the wrecking ball and that there’s a presence of the contributions of Chinese immigrants. Thank you for such an informative post.

      I know right! And the conservatory was also going to be demolished. Just makes you think about how many other great historic buildings we have lost! Bendigo really is so fascinating. Thanks for your thoughtful comment Anne 🙂

    this looks like an absolutely charming town! i love that vintage street car (it reminds me of new orleans, my favorite u.s. city), and how cool does the dragon museum look!? this seems to be a true hidden gem in Oz & i hope to see it one day.

      I’d love to see New Orleans! Yes the museum was so interesting. I love how much Bendigo acknowledges and celebrates the Chinese community who played such a big part in its growth into the city it is today!
