By hopping on and off the tram at each stop to explore the city's iconic attractions you'll uncover a golden story that dates back to the 1850s.
To truly understand Bendigo's golden origins, a visit to Central Deborah Gold Mine is a must. Guided through the honeycomb of hidden underground tunnels you will be amazed to discover what conditions for a miner were really like during the gold rush era and the lengths that they went to in the hopes of striking it rich.
Kitted up in a hard hat and miner's light you are guaranteed to catch gold fever on a Mine Experience Tour, 61 metres underground.
People from all over the world came to Bendigo in search of gold, but perhaps none is as evident and celebrated as the Chinese. Bendigo is still known today as 'Dai Gum San' or 'Big Gold Mountain'.
At the heritage-listed Bendigo Joss House Temple, a Chinese place of worship which was opened in 1871, you will discover more about Chinese beliefs and the story of the Chinese who came to Bendigo in search of gold.
Central Deborah Gold Mine and the Bendigo Joss House Temple are both easily accessible by Vintage Talking Tram.
Each tram tour includes a stop at Australia's oldest operating tram depot, which is home to Bendigo's renowned tram fleet. You'll see first-hand the craftsmanship and techniques involved in restoring trams to their former glory
