Alternate Road

Have you ever been to Bendigo? There’s a lot more to this beauty than you may think. Bendigo features stunningly preserved architecture, wide streets and old homes. It has exceptional food and wine, a strong sense of community, integral Chinese heritage and an art gallery that competes on the world stage.

Join Alternate Road on a day trip (or overnight stay) to soak up some of the highlights of this Central Victorian gem. Or, time your tour to take advantage of one of Bendigo’s celebrated festivals, from blues and roots music, to the Easter fair, to the Festival of Light.

Sit back and watch the landscape change as you travel north across the base of the Great Dividing Range and into Central Victoria. With coffee and cake under your belt, stretch your legs with a wander through the arts precinct, parks, and gardens dating back to the 1800's. Enjoy a leisurely lunch and soak up the atmosphere just as the locals do. Take in the Chinese heritage, taste some local wines, visit the Art Gallery or observe the construction of The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion – an attraction you may have not known existed.

Tour operator

Alternate Road is the new Melbourne-based business for Emily Spalding. A boutique tour operator with a difference, Alternate Road’s offering is unique - a series of experiences worth sharing, day tours unlike any others, especially geared for likeminded explorers.

The Alternate Road philosophy is about combining great people, great places and great produce in areas off the major tourist track. The all-inclusive day ticket means you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride to Bendigo, Gippsland, Macedon Ranges and more. With a super-small group size of just one to seven guests, the experience is intimate, or book your tour to be entirely private.

An Alternate Road adventure reveals the lesser known, you discover the bits you might otherwise miss and create memorable travel experiences worth telling your friends and family about. Visit the user-friendly website to book online anytime.
