Bendigo Post Office VIC

Bendigo is about 2 hours north of Melbourne in Central Victoria. The building was built between 1883 and 1887 by the contractors McCulloch and McAlpine and designed by Public Works architect George W Watson in the Second Empire architectural style. It is now being used as a tourist information centre.

What a beautiful building--hard to believe it is used for a mere post office. Wow.

Thanks for your comment. Yes there are some wonderful old buildings in Bendigo. Most were built from the proceeds of gold mining.
