Unique local retail and food experiences are highlighted in a revamped guide to Bendigo businesses.
The 2020 Bendigo Dining and Shopping Guide features local businesses in retail, hospitality and attractions.
Bendigo Tourism deputy chairman Peter Abbott said the guide was part of an economic development strategy to encourage people to stay in the city longer.
"It's to ensure guests to the city stay a bit longer, spend a bit more, and have an economic impact," Bendigo Tourism deputy chairman Peter Abbott said.

Homewares retailer Oliver Birch graces the cover of this year's guide.
Sales and buying assistant Eliza Hill said the guide provided good advertising for the business and was a good way to promote all the businesses involved.
"It gives people a good overview of what's available," Miss Hill said.
"Being a 'country town'... it's good to show the people coming from the cities what we have to offer."
The 2020 Bendigo Dining and Shopping Guide will be available from local businesses, the Visitor Information Centre and online at the Bendigo Tourism website.
