Bendigo Town Hall


During the height of the gold rush, Bendigo’s civic leaders decided that the appearance of the municipal building did not reflect the wealth and splendour of Bendigo’s ‘golden age’. Designed W.C Vahland the Town Hall interiors feature decorative plaster adorned with 22-carat-gold leaf, reflecting the stories of a city built on gold. In 2003 The Bendigo Town Hall returned to the elegance and beauty of its 19th century heritage after an extensive restoration and renovation program including plasterwork, murals and gold leaf worked by skilled artists and artisans.
