Gold was discovered in the area about 1850. Since then, Bendigo has been the second highest producing goldfield in Australia and remains the seventh largest in the world.
Bendigo was the city in which penniless Russian immigrant Sidney Myer opened the first Myer store in 1900. Today, Myer department stores can be found throughout Australia's capital cities and regional centres.
We drove through this city within and around it on our way home last month having visited it several times over the years. This year I took some photos but couldn't get close enough to the buildings due to traffic. I am not sure which building is what but they are all along one street except one building.
The Police Station.
