Travel Diary: Staycation in Echuca, Victoria [Pt.2]

There are few tourist destinations I visited while I was in Melbourne. These are the golden city of Bendigo, the premier ski resort of Mt Buller and lastly their cosmopolitan and stylish capital city.

Each place has a unique offering to every visitor. Beautiful heritage buildings set the scene in Bendigo, picturesque setting and spectacular mountain views on the way to Mt Buller while Melbourne has a unique fusion of world cultures and sophistication.

Bendigo City
The unusual combination of grand goldrush-era public buildings, an intact 19th century commercial district, Sacred Heart Cathedral and century old park ranks Bendigo as one of Australia's most impressive regional centres.

Mt Buller

Tucked away from the outskirts of Melbourne, Mt Buller Village is a 3 hour drive situated picturesquely at the heart of the mountain offering ski in, ski out accommodation and a wide range of bars and restaurant. It has everything you need for a perfect winter experience.
