Bendigo Victoria’s Coolest Town

Bendigo and the Heathcote Region was a buzz late August when on Saturday 25th, the Age – Life and Style lift out featured 3 articles focusing on:

  •  The Growth of Bendigo (specifically in the food and wine scene)
  • 6 Reasons to Visit Heathcote
  • A profile on the Dispensary Enoteca.

The ‘3 page Bendigo feature’ written by Richard Cornish who is a passionate foodie, has certainly profiled Bendigo. One quote from Richard:

“Now, with its thriving arts and food scene, Bendigo is vying for the mantle of 2012’s coolest Victorian country town. Five years ago, you couldn’t get a decent coffee – let alone bubbly at a hip bar – and only the most dedicated arts patrons travelled the 150 kilometres from Melbourne to visit the gallery.”

Although these articles only profiled some of the quality operators in the Bendigo Region, it is testament to the passion and hard work of the whole food and wine Industry.

Congratulations to all the operators and businesses who continue to develop the City of Bendigo and its surrounding communities.
