Bishopscourt has a rich and colourful history. Built for eminent surgeon and scientist Paul Howard MacGillivray as a private home and surgery, the largest private residence in Bendigo at that time, Bishopscourt later spent 64 years as the Anglican Churches Bishops Palace.

Bishopscourt Bed and Breakfast is an easy walk to Bendigo's arts and sports precincts, antiques, restaurants and cafes, parklands and tourist attractions.
