It is also notable for its Victorian architectural heritage.The city took its name from the Bendigo Creek and its residents from the earliest days of the goldrush have been called "Bendigonians".
Vahland also designed more than 80 buildings, including the Alexandra Fountain, arguably the most prominent monument in Bendigo, with its granite dolphins, unicorns, nymphs and allegorical figures. After a temporary drop in population, there was renewed growth from the 1930s, as the city consolidated as a manufacturing and regional service centre, though gold mining continued till 1954.When the alluvial gold ran out, the goldfields evolved into major mines with deep shafts to mine the quartz-based gold. Rapid population growth brought a water shortage, partially solved with a new viaduct that harnessed the Coliban River.The architect William Charles Vahland left an important mark on Bendigo during this period.Seeking nice easy going girl to hang out and enjoy a laugh.

There is some industrial land use in the suburbs around the CBD.Once the alluvial gold had been mined out, mining companies were formed to exploit the rich underground quartz reef gold.Since 1851 about 780,000 kilograms (25 million troy ounces) of gold have been extracted from Bendigo's goldmines, making it the highest producing goldfield in Australia in the 19th century and the largest gold mining economy in eastern Australia.Recent growth has been most heavily concentrated in areas such as Epsom, Kangaroo Flat, Strathdale and Strathfieldsaye.In 1994 the City of Bendigo was abolished and merged with the Borough of Eaglehawk, the Huntly and Strathfieldsaye shires and the Rural City of Marong to form the larger City of Greater Bendigo.The city encompasses a total land area of 3,000 square kilometres, of which a significant proportion is national park, regional park, reserve or bushland.
