BENDIGO residents are encouraged to see more of their own backyard as the city's favourite attractions reopen after lockdown.
And to celebrate, a new Love Your Local offer gives residents the opportunity to enjoy a Bendigo Tramways Vintage Talking Tram Tour, or descend underground at Central Deborah Gold Mine on an experience tour at reduced prices.
With travel restrictions still in place, it is the perfect opportunity for residents to try something new, whilst uncovering more about the fascinating heritage of their hometown.
"We regularly hear from locals that they have never been underground on a mine tour or stepped on board a Vintage Talking Tram before, which is why we developed the Love Your Local deal," Bendigo Heritage Attractions chief executive James Reade said.
"We wanted to make it as affordable as possible for locals to experience, whilst also recognising their ongoing support of our heritage sites."
Offering entry by donation, residents are also encouraged to visit the Bendigo Joss House Temple.
The temple is easily accessible by Vintage Talking Tram and provides a unique insight into life on the goldfields for Chinese migrants during the goldrush.
The deal will be available to City of Greater Bendigo residents throughout the month of August.
To avoid missing out, residents are encouraged to book their tickets online in advance as spaces are limited on each of the tours.
Those wishing to find out more are encouraged to visit central-deborah.com or phone 4444 2810.
Tram tickets are available for for $5 per person, and $15 per person or $60 per family for the goldmine tours.
Proof of residency will be requested on arrival.
