Food Options

Let us organise food for your group! Whether it be morning or afternoon tea, an underground crib lunch, or lunch on the run, we are happy to meet your catering needs.

Your visit to Bendigo isn't complete without trying our unique Miner’s Pasty. The pasty consists of meat and vegetables at one end and apple pie at the other. The thick crust was used as a grip for the miner’s dirty hands, which they threw away once they had finished eating. All Crib Lunches include a Miner’s Pasty.

Crib Lunches

If you're looking for a unique lunch option that your students are guaranteed to enjoy, pair your underground experience at Central Deborah Gold Mine with an underground Crib Lunch. Enjoyed in the Underground Function Room, each person will receive a traditional Miner's Pasty, a fruit tub and a drink. Crib Lunches cost $10.00 per person. Just let us know if anyone in your group has any special dietary requirements!

Lunch Packs

For an easy to arrange lunch, our lunch packs are the way to go. Each pack includes a sandwich, fruit juice, packet of chips, a piece of fruit and a tub of yoghurt. Lunch packs can be enjoyed in the Central Deborah Gold Mine picnic area, undercover in the Ray Beer Story Room or if you're running short on time, take them with you on the tram or your bus. Lunch packs cost $12.50 per person. Just let us know if anyone in your group has any special dietary requirements!

Bring your own lunch

We have a fantastic picnic area located on the surface of Central Deborah Gold Mine which your group is more than welcome to make use of. Bring along your own packed lunch and we'll store it in our cool room until you're ready! Keep in mind that this area isn't undercover, so may not be suitable on rainy days.
