Along historic Pall Mall in Bendigo is a chiming clock tower that is renown for having kept Dame Nellie Melba awake at night many years ago. The clock tower is part of the former Bendigo Post Office and Public Offices building. Dame Nellie Melba had been staying in a room across the road at the Shamrock Hotel.

Former Bendigo Post Office building

The old post office building is an example of goldrush architecture in the Renaissance Revival style and was built between 1883 and 1887. No longer operating as the main post office, the building is now home to the Bendigo Visitor Information Centre. The centre is definitely worth a visit when you first arrive in Bendigo, as the helpful staff can assist with accommodation bookings and information on events and places of interest in and around Bendigo. The centre also has visitor maps and guide books as well as a range of local books, products, and souvenirs for sale.
