Visiting hours

Lives are changed and families made multiple times a day at the Bendigo Hospital. Lauren Mitchell visits a place where love stories start.


Missing Meagan

It’s impossible to pinpoint when Meagan Anderson started to disappear, but slowly, irrevocably, the essence of the bright, young mum is being erased.


Puppet love

Bendigo’s much-loved children’s storyteller Narelle Stone hands us a backstage pass to her amazing collection of characters.


Totally cute

In need of a hobby, Ash Tuohey found she had a knack for online retail. Now, with her mum Janice on board too, her ‘baby’ Tiny Sprout is out in the real world and growing strong.


Pushing boundaries

Lisa is one of only a few females officiating at a senior level in cricket. Juggling her career and the sport she loves has proven tricky but she’s more than a match for the challenge.


Keep on giving

The G.I.F.T. is a group of local women who give back to the community by passionately fundraising for those who are living with cancer, a cause that touches many of us.


Cool options

Sangria. It’s Spanish for: “Geez it’s hot, I need a delicious, fruity iced wine beverage.”


Creative culinary

Necessity was the mother of the invention of the Starving Artist Food Co. ... and Dr Scroll ... and a thriving catering business.


Giddy up girls

When you weigh less than 48kg in your socks, and balance and steer a 600kg juggernaut over speeds matched only by a motor-driven machine, you can’t be too precious. It takes courage, strength and a determination that most of us can only hope for.
