The Open House Bendigo 2019 program returns with 30 percent more buildings and special events on offer across the weekend of October 26-27. Highlights include:
Eaglehawk Heritage Precinct
In one of Victoria’s unsung gold-producing centres, Eaglehawk’s significant heritage buildings will be open together for one day only. Sites include the Mechanics Institute, former Eaglehawk Town Hall, and the Eaglehawk Courthouse, with its original Log Lock-up.
Kooroork House II
With a sustainable focus and a restricted budget, and in only 160 square metres, Kooroork House II highlights how family homes on a budget are possible without compromising on sustainable and design aspirations.
Beehive Building, Bendigo Mining Exchange
Be the first to see the beautifully restored 1872 Beehive Building at the Bendigo Mining Exchange, similar in style to Melbourne’s Royal Arcade, which has been returned to its former glory. The current development uncovers the rich layers of use, revealing key features of the original building. Visitors will access the newly completed arcade including the second storey, revealing the intricate beauty of the glass ceiling not seen for decades.
