The entrance to the Bendigo Historic Reserve is on the Bendigo Loop Road, about 20km from Cromwell on SH8. There are information panels in the car park at what was Welshtown and numerous walking tracks lead to the historic remains.
Look out for mine shafts – there are particularly impressive ones above Aurora Creek with narrow roads linking them; the Matilda and Aurora batteries; water races; pipelines and the stone remains of Pengelly’s Hotel and at Logantown.
