Bendigo, known also officially as Sandhurst in former times, has had an interesting and vibrant history over its 150 or so years.

Its history spans the spectacular gold 'rush' that disrupted the early colonial pastoral leases through to the town and city established on well organized gold production and deep reef mining.

Time and diversification have lead to its current position as a leading provincial city of Victoria, Australia.

We invite you to learn about the organisation and functioning of our Society and forthcoming speakers at our monthly meetings.
