So what’s the plan?

We will meet at Southern Cross station by 11.00am to board an 11.22am V/Line service to Bendigo. We’ll send attendees suggested times for connecting trains from Cheltenham & Sandringham stations.

We aim to share a train carriage so we can hand out delicious fresh sandwiches & tarts, catered by The Parlour. There will be vegetarian options but apologies due to limited group size, we are unable to cater for vegan, allergy and other special dietary requirements.

Arriving in Bendigo at 1.12pm, we’ll make our way to the Gallery, which is a 15 minute stroll. We’ve arranged a special dedicated introduction thanks to the museum curators. We’ll spend around 1-2 hours at the exhibition. Then we’ll meet up at Wine Bank on View, Bendigo for a social drink &/or snack.

There are a number of V/Line services you can choose to take home, including departures at 4.25pm (arrive Southern Cross at 6.20pm); 5.25pm(arriving 7.20pm) or 6.38pm* (arriving 8.44pm).

*This service may have limited non reserve seating.
