PAST EVENT

Victoria Hill Mining Reserve: Walk & Talk Tour

The Victoria Hill Mining Reserve is on the Victorian Heritage Register and dates back to the 1850's. The site displays geological rock formations, mining relics and machinery. There is a constructed walking trail and guest presenter will be Bendigo historian and author James Lerk.

James Lerk will lead the “Walk & Talk”. He was a founding member of the original Victoria Hill Committee in 1972 and has played a prominent role with others in preserving the site. This is an important gathering as the Greater Bendigo City Council has just launched a draft plan for the future of the site and there is an opportunity for attendees to make comment. The draft plan can be found at Let’s Talk Bendigo and comments can be made.
The walk takes about an hour, you can climb a poppet head for a view of Bendigo at the site and facilities including a bbq and toilets are on site.
