Bendigo – golden opportunities await! Bendigo is one of Victoria’s original boom towns, a progressive and contemporary city located in the geographical heart of the state. In post-colonial Australia, the discovery of gold in 1851 shifted the region’s focus away from vast sheep stations to all forms of gold mining.
Since those earliest discoveries, more than 780,000 kilograms of gold have been extracted from Bendigo and the surrounding regions – a treasure trove of magnificent public buildings pay obvious tribute to this past.
Today, Bendigo and surrounds have almost 10,000 different businesses and a workforce of more than 53,000 people. The main form of employment across the Greater Bendigo region is in health care, finance and insurance services followed by retail, trade, education and training and manufacturing.
It’s a city connected to Melbourne by high-quality road and rail infrastructure which explains why so many have and continue to make this beautiful region their home.
Low interest rates and a significant shift towards working remotely have fuelled an avalanche of interest in Bendigo’s property market with first home buyers and investors snapping up properties as soon as they hit the market.
Recently, this high demand and low supply has seen properties in Bendigo’s eastern suburbs reporting up to six per cent increases in sale prices.
And the growth corridors which take in Strathfieldsaye, Maiden Gully and Huntly are popular with growing families wanting to be close to the town’s great amenities.
With so many excellent local restaurants, wineries, schools, health and recreational facilities and a cultural scene as good as anywhere in the world, people are changing tracks and they’re headed for Bendigo.
