Bendigo Regional Tourism together with Australian tourism strategists, The Tourism Collective, are currently working on the development of an updated Destination Management Plan (DMP) for the Bendigo Region, and aligned Local Area Action Plans (LAAPs) for the City of Greater Bendigo, Mount Alexander, Loddon and Central Goldfields Shire Councils.

The role of a DMP is to unite all tourism stakeholders, including the community, under a collaborative vision for the future of tourism, and to uncover the strategic opportunities that support the attainment of that vision. 

In the first stage of the development of the DMP, we invite all residents, businesses, community groups, students and regional stakeholders to complete a visioning survey, to share your perspectives and aspirations for tourism in your specific community and region. 
Thank you for taking the time to complete our this short survey (average of 12 minutes). If you have any questions about the survey content, please email us on

*Please note your responses are confidential and will not be individually shared with a third party, but collated into an overall insights report with de-identified responses. The Tourism Collective adheres to the Australian Privacy Principles and will destroy any identifiable or sensitive information pertaining to respondents at the conclusion of the project in October 2023.
