Special Projects    

The New Central Hub & Visitors' Centre       

This project is the next stage of the Masterplan created with the City of Greater Bendigo for the Bendigo Botanic Gardens.  It includes: a Visitor Centre building, a Central Plaza & Wetland/Ponds.

The architects:  GHD Woodhead Architecture in consultation with the Friends Committee, the City of Greater Bendigo, and the Dja Dja Wurrung people, developed the plans for the Hub.

Where:  The Central Hub is located within the Botanic Gardens area, between the Heritage Gardens and the newly established Garden for the Future. 

Purpose:  The Central Hub buildings and landscaping will become the heart of the Botanic Gardens area. It will provide a central meeting place & visitor information & services.  Visitors will be encouraged to connect with and use the landscape & wetlands.

The Friends will make good use of the building as our meetings will be based in the Central Hub.

Current Progress:  Construction work is progressing well and estimated completion is mid-2022.
