    Very Interesting and worth the visit
    We visited the Bendigo Pottery last week and found it really interesting. There is lots to see as well as really interesting pottery items to buy to suit many tastes. The cafe serves great coffee with wonderfully fresh food also available. The artisan workshops and displays adjacent are amazing. Attached to the pottery is a vintage shop that held many surprises. We easily spent a couple of hours meandering around the whole complex.

    Worth the stop
    Midway stop for lunch (we were on our way to NW Victoria). Wonderful, wish we had more time to explore! Bought detox tea from WA, small art piece by Yvonne George, cufflinks, enjoyed a delicious lunch at the cafe (scones, tea & quiche) and an intentional purchase of one lasagne dish with the Bendigo Pottery factory mark.

    Bendigo Pottery proves popular.
    If your in the area don't pass without a look. Quaint old era buildings within a nice garden setting. More to look at than just pottery but that is the draw card. Very interesting and the finished items are reasonable in price. Watch and see how it is done, complete with mini museum. Food available on site. Great photo opportunities.

So pleased to visit Bendigo Pottery as their products have been around for many, many decades!
The complex is clean, well set out, easy to move around and the staff were all lovely, particularly Tracey on the front counter. There is a cafe on site as well and plenty of free parking.

In the pottery there is a potter you can watch at work and there are lots of lovely pottery pieces to browse. Next door is an awesome Collectables market where we found many treasures but had to narrow it down to just a couple!
We stopped in at the studio of artist, Joan Harris, to whom we had a great chat. Really liked her collages. We also stopped at the Goldfields Providore run by Jeff Hooley who was very friendly and helpful. We were disappointed to see the Glenwillow Wines shop was not open.

Highly recommended! There is no entry fee either!

Visited this month and was surprised to find more than just pottery. Friendly staff, great coffee and scones and the antiques market was really interesting to browse and a trip down memory lane. Unexpectedly we found treasures to take with us. Not to be missed if you visit Bendigo and lovely pottery to take home as a reminder of the visit.

You can purchase good deals, look at their website prior to visiting so you can see what they have. Clean and easy to walk around.

A lifetime dream to attend this historic pottery and it’s glorious. Fascinating. The range of pottery to buy is lovely. The secondhand/antique emporium is massive with a huge range with sone treasures amid a lot of schlock. The staff members of the antique market are sadly grumpy, almost rude and easily flustered and seem to resent opening the myriad display cases.

It was Australia’s oldest working pottery, established in the 1858. They still had the old kilns there and you could walk around the works. We ended up buying an item each from the shop. I bought a milk jug in the classic brown Bendigo Pottery colours. The kilns were amazing - huge and very old.

The old kilns were interesting and worthwile to see how it was once done. The pottery is old style and one assumes still in demand but there is a giant opportunity for more modern and aristic pottery. Bendigo Pottery needs to move to the next century with part of what it offers and retain the old for those that still want yt.
