Bendigo Easter Festival
The Tourism and Major Events team is responsible for the coordination of activities relating to the attraction and support of major events to Bendigo.
With international and national events hosted throughout the year in our diverse parks, heritage and contemporary buildings and open spaces, Bendigo has earned its reputation as a world class events capital of regional Victoria.
Our beautiful tree-lined streets and impressive buildings create a picturesque backdrop to any event, while our convenient location in the heart of Victoria is accessible for many surrounding towns, all within an easy 90 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD.
Volunteers are integral to the success of our events in the City
“We acknowledge that the City of Greater Bendigo is on Dja Dja Wurrung and Taungurung Country.
I would like to acknowledge and extend my appreciation for the Dja Dja Wurrung people, the Traditional Owners of the land that we are standing on today.
Today, we pay our respects to leaders and Elder’s past, present and emerging for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and the hopes of all Dja Dja Wurrung* people.
We express our gratitude in the sharing of this land, our sorrow for the personal, spiritual and cultural costs of that sharing and our hope that we may walk forward together in harmony and in the spirit of healing”.
