Sit back and be spoon fed all the important bits. I would only suggest they had a few more stops as I found it hard to walk between stops. I would highly recommend the 2 day addon as there is heaps to see and do.

A great way to spend the morning seeing Bendigo. Staff very friendly and more importantly child friendly! This we appreciated. Very informative and just good fun. The Depot cat is a must and just adds to the vibe.
