Welcome to Greater Bendigo

We want to do business with you! 

Ideally located in the geographic heart of Victoria, and a scenic 90-minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD, Greater Bendigo is one of Australia’s fastest growing regional centres, with around 2,000 new residents calling the region ‘home’ each year.

As a largely a self-contained regional centre, more than 90 per cent of the workforce lives locally. Our main industries are healthcare and social assistance, retail, manufacturing, construction, and education and training.

The information throughout our business pages has been provided to help you establish a new business, help your existing business grow, provide COVID-19 support and help businesses, developers, individuals and families discover the advantages of investing in the region.

Business Help Desk

The City’s Business Help Desk is available to assist with any business-related enquiries.

Open from 8:30am – 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
