We travel to Bendigo to visit The Golden Dragon Museum, visiting the ponds, Pergodas and important Chinese artifacts. The tour will be taken by a local historian. We then have lunch at The National Hotel before we travel to The Great Stupa which is the largest Stupa in the Southern hemisphere. Come and visit the beautiful gardens, statues and marvel at the world’s largest gemstone, the Jade Buddha which stands nearly 3 meters high. Again we have arranged a private tour which will also take you into The Stupa and talk all about it’s history and why and how the building was constructed. You will have time for a cuppa too
