Getting here



Whether you come by road or rail, you'll find Bendigo is very central for touring the Central  Victorian region. 

By train from Melbourne, it takes 2 hours, and about the same by car.

We're about 90 minutes, too, from Melbourne Airport, and there's a very convenient direct bus that services Bendigo travellers.  

And for the first time, there is now a direct flight from Sydney to Bendigo! Qantas has announced this new direct service, which will be super-convenient and make our Festival just that little bit more accessible for Sydney visitors.
