Your Bendigo, through our eyes.

We’ve been shining our light on Bendigo since 2005


Bendigo Magazine was founded independently in 2005 by Amy Doak.


Bendigo Magazine was purchased by Bendigo Publishing (Bendigo Weekly) in 2011.


Bendigo Magazine became an independent publication again in 2016.


With support from the Regional and Small Publishers Innovation Fund we were able to build a new website for Bendigo Magazine and expand our digital outreach.


16 years later Bendigo Magazine is still thriving within a challenging media landscape, rebranding with a fresh new look for the magazine and website in 2021.

We are a passionate collective of die-hard Bendigonians
