What is Bendigo Heritage Attractions all about?
Bendigo Heritage Attractions preserves, restores and shares the stories of some of Bendigo’s best and most significant heritage sites, including:

Central Deborah Gold Mine
Central Deborah Gold Mine operated commercially from 1939-1954 and produces almost one ton of gold. Today it offers award-winning underground tours to young and old visitors from all over the world.

Bendigo Tramways
Bendigo Tramways Depot and Workshop is the oldest operating depot in Australia. Home to a unique and rare heritage tram fleet, Bendigo Tramways offers historic tours through Bendigo’s majestic CBD.

Bendigo Joss House Temple
This Chinese place of worship was constructed in the 1870s and was originally part of the Ironbark Chinese Camp. It is one of the few remaining original buildings of its type in Australia and was heritage-listed by the National Trust.
