Come, enjoy and learn about the Chinese, experience of the Bendigo goldfields, from the past to the present. See the colourful display of the ‘living’ collection of the Chinese dragons and associated regalia used in the annual Bendigo Easter procession, to help raise funds for local charities since 1871.
We provide personalised tours in a range of topics including Chinese symbolism, Social history, Goldfield history and of course, our much loved Chinese dragons.
