The Gold Mines Hotel

The Gold Mines Hotel was built in 1872 and represents the height of prosperity, thanks to the discovery of gold in Bendigo.

The hotel is positioned on an elevated 1.2 acre site in central Bendigo opposite the historic Victoria Hill Mine. This mine became a source of David Chaplin Sterry’s wealth and prosperity and he finished building the hotel in 1872. This elegant Victorian Hotel is only minutes from central business district of Bendigo
