We describe how gold & mass migration transformed a sleepy sheep run and land of the Dja Dja Wurrung into the world's richest city of the 1880s.
We recall the Bendigo people, events and fabulous wealth that built 'Marvellous Melbourne' and shaped a new nation.
We explore Bendigo's role in campaigns for democracy, votes for women, trade unionism and Federation.
Our stories include the quirky, remarkable, sometimes humorous, often forgotten, but always intriguing stories of our city.

I am JIll Hanlon and I am the founder of Bendigo Walking Tours. For three years my husband Peter and I have been hosting fully guided, walking tours through the historic heart Bendigo - one of the world's great goldrush cities.
Our passion is researching and sharing the social and political history of Bendigo - the people and events that shaped our nation.
We have a long connection with the Victorian gold rush.
Pete’s great grandfather was born in a tent on the Bendigo diggings in 1859.
My ancestors were mining at Ballarat during the Eureka Rebellion of 1854 and on other goldfields.

All around us is Bendigo's boom style architecture.

Jill was a fantastic guide, she had some excellent stories that made us feel like we were back in the Gold Rush era. She was amazing with our 2 dogs that came along. They also loved it.

We really enjoyed our walking tour with Pete. He was a really good story teller and we found some of the things he told us very fascinating. We learnt so much not only about Bendigo's history but how Bendigo actually had an influence on broader Australian history. The walk itself wasn't far, as most things were in close proximity. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bendigo.

Thank you Jill for a great walking tour of Bendigo. My parents and I appreciated your informative historical recounts, welcoming tone, and keen sense of humour. Would recommend for first timers or returners to Bendigo for a deeper appreciation of Bendigo.

An enjoyable short walk around the garden in the centre of Bendigo. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate. The tour didn’t cover as much ground as I expected.

There was 4 of us who went on the walking tour with Peter. We all absolutely loved it. Peter had an extensive knowledge of the history of Bendigo and surrounding areas. We couldn’t fault the experience. A definite for people visiting Bendigo and wanting to learn about the history.

What a fantastic walking tour. Jills knowledge of the area is amazing and gave both myself and my husband a new found knowledge of the importance of this region and its contribution to Victoria and Australia as we know it today.
