The Gold Country Sights

Bendigo Pottery

Updated 01/15/2014

Fodor's Review

Australia's oldest working pottery turns out distinctive brown-and-cream style pieces that many Australians have in their kitchens. Founded in 1858, the historic workshop offers demonstrations. You can even get your hands dirty creating your own clay piece during a wheel-throwing lesson (bookings essential during school holidays); there's also a clay play area for small children. Impressive beehive brick kilns, which you can step inside, are star exhibits in the museum.

It's 6½ km (4 mi) northeast of Bendigo on the way to Echuca.
