Gallery looks at Bendigo from above

Bendigo will be showcased from the air in a new exhibition set to open at the Post Office Gallery.

Vantage Point: Aerial Views of Bendigo looks at early aviation in Bendigo and shows a bird’s-eye view of the city in the first half of the 20th century.

Some of the photographs of Bendigo featured in the exhibition were taken in by pioneer aviator Charles Pratt.

Aerial photography gave a new perspective on the world. 

It came into focus as aviation developed the possibilities of using flight to transport freight and passengers.

Vantage Point: Aerial Views of Bendigo is on from June 9 to August 13 at the Post Office Gallery.

Before the exhibition opens, take a look at some of the aerial photographs the Bendigo Advertiser photographers have taken over the years.
