Believe in Bendigo is a campaign that celebrates diversity, inclusion and multiculturalism within the City of Greater Bendigo, Regional Victoria and throughout the wider Australian community.

Last year, thousands of Bendigo residents celebrated diversity and condemned hatred by creating a sea of yellow during the Believe in Bendigo picnic event celebrated in the Civic Gardens.  This year’s event looks like being even bigger.

“We would love to see all Bendigo families make an appearance at this year’s picnic,” Believe in Bendigo’s Jays Tayah said. “We encourage each school to get behind the positive, inclusive and multicultural message that the Believe in Bendigo movement is all about.

“Bendigo is a great place to live, raise a family, learn, work or visit; a positive, progressive and modern City that has an immense amount of culture, diversity and heritage that can be enjoyed by all.”

Believe in Bendigo was formed in September 2015 by community, business, political, health, education and faith leaders from across Bendigo.
