Chinese heritage is an integral part of Bendigo. From the goldrush to the present day, the Bendigo Chinese community has influenced the proud history of Bendigo - from its tradition of charitable works for local hospitals to its spectacular displays in the Bendigo Easter Fair. Born of the long association with the people of the region, the Bendigo Chinese Association is proud to present the GOLDEN DRAGON MUSEUM - a living history of the Chinese people of Bendigo from the goldrush of the 1850's to present day.
NOTE: - A few poor examples of Bonsai are on display in the Garden of Joy that is part of the museum complex, and is not worth visiting if you have come just to see these.
