“It also positions the Bendigo Region as a major arts and cultural destination,” Ms Mackenzie said.
“Victoria has an abundance of arts and culture and the Experience Culture Victoria publication is a go to guide to uncover the depth of creative places, spaces and experiences waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
“From tiny laneway experiences to street art, museums, galleries, theatre, major festivals, events and more, the compact nature of Victoria makes it easy to navigate by road or by rail.
“The guide has been produced in collaboration with local and regional tourism boards, metropolitan and regional councils and Victoria’s galleries, museums, heritage sites, artists and craftspeople.
“Victoria’s arts, cultural and heritage scene is alive and well and this edition of the guide is a must for culture vultures.”
