The Bendigo Historical Society is holding walking tours during January as part of the summer in the parks program.
The tours will be conducted in central Bendigo, with Rosalind Park, the town hall and the fountain among some of the sites explored.
View and Hargreaves streets as well as the laneways around the city centre also form part of the tours.
Bendigo Historical Society president Jim Evans said the tours allowed visitors and newcomers to gain an insight into Bendigo’s history, which he said was rich and colourful.
“We like to show people how the city streetscape had changed over the years,” Mr Evans said.
“The tours give visitors and newcomers the opportunity to learn about the city.”
Tours will be held every Sunday during this month, with the first one this Sunday. They run for one hour and those wishing to take part are asked to met at the Bendigo Visitor Centre at 8.45am for a 9am start.
Bookings are not necessary, but walking shoes, a hat and water bottle are recommended. Cost is free but a gold coin donation is appreciated.
