City of Gastronomy
Bendigo is currently preparing an application to be appointed as Australia’s first UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.
Becoming a City of Gastronomy is a celebration not just of Greater Bendigo’s strengths, but of our whole region – our history, potential and creativity in all things food and drink. It is an opportunity to show the world how we promote and reward excellence within our local food systems, how we champion sustainability and work towards equal access to healthy food, how we drive excellence in food industry training and open our doors to new global opportunities and investment for our region
This is not a single event; should Greater Bendigo successfully be recognised as a City of Gastronomy, this recognition will continue to define, influence and nurture our region’s gastronomic potential for years to come.
