BENDIGO BUSINESS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Historic Pall Mall, Bendigo
Bendigo is a city that was built on gold during the famous goldrush period. Gold was found in Central Victoria around 1840 but was a well kept secret until the early 1850s. On June 19th 1871, Sandhurst was declared a city and Bendigo was officially known as Sandhurst. Most locals refused to recognise the new name and the popular name Bendigo was restored in 1891.

MORE BENDIGO HISTORY
Bendigo was originally named after a local prize-fighter nick-named Bendigo, who took on his name from British boxer Abednego Thompson, well known at the time of the 1852 rush.
Charing Cross circa 1868.
This photograph (circa 1868) of the main street was taken before the fountain was placed in Charing Cross. The building on left burnt down and was replaced with Fountain Court. Although the City Family Hotel is still there today, the whole area has recently undergone extensive changes to become a four storey modern business complex, owned and operated by the Bendigo Bank.
