Beehive Building, Bendigo Mining Exchange

Architect: Charles Webb 1872, DBG Projects (builder) with Williams Boag Architects 2019

Bendigo | BEN03

Building Description

Open House visitors will be the first to see the beautifully restored 1872 Beehive Building at the Bendigo Mining Exchange, which has been returned to its former glory after extensive works by builder DBG Projects with Williams Boag Architects design. Similar in style to Melbourne’s Royal Arcade and by the same designer, Charles Webb, the building’s original uses include a hotel, a mining exchange, a restaurant, offices and function space. The current development uncovers the rich layers of use by removing most of, if not all of the 1920s’ and 1950s’ changes, revealing key features of the original building. Visitors had access to the ground level construction site during the 2018 Open House Bendigo program, and this year visitors will access the newly completed arcade including the second story, revealing the intricate beauty of the glass ceiling not seen for decades.

What's On

Visitors will access the newly completed arcade including the second story for timed self-guided tours. Expect this building to be busy,  arrive early to avoid disappointment.
