Eaglehawk is a former gold-mining town in Victoria, Australia and is situated within the City of Greater Bendigo. The town is north-west of Bendigo on the Loddon Valley Highway.
Gold was discovered at Bendigo in October 1851 and the gold-bearing land extended several kilometres north and north-west of Bendigo, beyond Eaglehawk. California Gully and Sailors Gully recorded gold finds in the first half of 1852, along with Eaglehawk.
While staying at the Eaglehawk Motel don’t miss a visit to the heritage listed Bendigo Joss House Temple. This Chinese place of worship was built in the 1860’s and is dedicated to the god of war & prosperity.
Another great place to visit during your stay is The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion which is a sacred Buddhist monument. It is an exact replica of the Great Stupa of Gyantse. Buddhists say that viewing the stupa will help purify the mind. The Bendigo stupa is being designed to last 1,000 years. There is a vast collection of Asian sacred relics and statues on display at the Great Stupa exhibition centre.
