Day 2 : Bendigo - Castlemaine - Maldon - Bendigo
We start the day with a hearty cooked breakfast before we board the coach and make our way to Castlemaine where we meet a guide. The guide will join the coach and show us around the Historical town of Castlemaine.  Due to the immense riches which poured into Castlemaine in the 1850s and early 1860s, substantial administrative, commercial and private buildings emerged far more quickly than in many other centres. Moreover, the town ceased to grow when the alluvial gold dwindled and so the older buildings were deemed adequate for the town. Consequently many of the CBD's structures date from that early period. Lunch time upon us is in the main heart of the city (own cost). After lunch we board the train for Maldon. We travel through Mucklefield to Maldon on the railway built in 1881 (Steam weather permitting) We have a tour of Maldon specifically taking in one of the best vantage points in town from atop Anzac Hill which furnishes views of the Grampians, Mount Franklin and Mount Macedon in the distance. Returning to Bendigo for a well earned rest before dinner.  After dinner we make our way to the Torchlight Procession lights up Bendigo's streetscapes magnificently on Easter Saturday evening. Featuring illuminated entries from local emergency services, community groups and the Bendigo Chinese Association. To conclude, a dynamic fireworks display will erupt over Rosalind Park. (B,D)
Day 3 : Bendigo Parade Day
We Wake to another breaky ready for a fun-filled day.  Today we make our way into town for the Bendigo Easter Fair, where we park the coach and let you wander as you wish to take in some of the activities of the Easter Fair and look at the parks and gardens, Wander through the Rotary markets listen to the bands or visit museums etc.  A MUST SEE is the world’s longest Imperial Dragon in it’s once-a-year parade around the city streets carried by over 100 people.
