Guests will then head to the Rosalind Tower Hill Lookout, which is a great way to see the buildings and Bendigo city surroundings and will have ample time to explore Rosalind Gardens and the vibrant tulip display.

After walking through Rosalind Gardens, guests will have free time to either go shopping at the local plaza (which is located within a walking distance) or can enjoy a coffee or lunch at one of the local cafes (lunch is at the guest's expense).

The tour will then conclude with a visit to Sacred Heart Cathedral and Lake Weroona, regarded as the jewel in Bendigo's crown.
