We arrived here and started our own sell guided tour. But then an impromptu tour started we joined in the guide was both informative and funny and Australian born Chinese man who showed us all around it made our afternoon. Highly recommend

The Chinese gardens were a lovely surprise on our recent visit to Bendigo. We had a sunny day to watch the fish in the pond swimming and enjoy all the beautiful sights of the garden.

I am still blown away from our recent visit here, I didn’t expect the wow factor that the Golden Dragon Museum gave us, from the amazing colours when you first enter to the unexpected size of Sun Loong. The items they have on display are...More

When you are in Bendigo, you must come and see Rus and Sun Loong. Rus (Russell Goldfields Jack, AM) is a legend and an Australian living treasure. This is Australian heritage.

A fascinating glimpse into Bendigo's rich Chinese history from the normal domestic view to the fantastic celebratory dragons and costumes. Makes me wish I was there for the Easter parade!

Friendly informative staff. Amazing exhibits especially the loong dragon and the jade chariot. Quality of exhibits outstanding. Could not believe the coins over 2000 years old.

I am glad I went and looked through this place. I knew nothing about the Chinese culture and their time immigrating to Australia. I know a little now and it was very interesting seeing all their traditional things

John Wade 29 has nailed the various prices. It’s actually cheap considering the quality of the attraction. Make sure you pay the fee for the local guide as the experience is so much richer.
