Bendigo Easter Festival, Goldfields, Victoria, Australia
Show map

Events

The Goldfields boasts a rich calendar of festivals and events. From music, wine and dancing to food, antiques and sport, there's always something to see and do.

The new year
Begin the new year with the sounds from the Organs of the Ballarat Goldfields festival, a program of glorious music played in historic venues. Need something different? Kick up your heels at the Maryborough Highland Games, a New Year's Day fixture for the past 140 years.

Easter magic
At Easter, see Sun Loong the Chinese dragon parade through the streets of Bendigo for the annual four-day festival. Alternatively, enjoy a local drop at the Bendigo Winemakers Festival, held in the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens on Easter Sunday.

Winter warmers
Sample the region's winter delights with a season of farmers markets, festivals and literary events. Time your holiday for the food, wine and entertainment of Heathcote on Show, or mix with the locals for Maldon in Winter, a festival of culinary delight and music in the historic town, featuring night markets and a good old-fashioned bonfire.

Springtime follies
In October, tour Bendigo's heritage buildings while enjoying offerings from local restaurants at Bendigo Heritage Uncorked. Step into spring at the Maldon Folk Festival, a four-day musical extravaganza featuring some of the country's finest folk artists, or stroll the many stunning gardens that open during the Castlemaine Festival of Gardens.
