COMFORTABLE & SECURE
Ducted heating in all rooms for cold winter nights and air conditioning for summer. Large wall mounted TVs are installed in lounge and first bedroom. A fully EQUIPPED KITCHEN gives you the option of cooking up a treat if you want to save on the costs of eating out. There's a PRIVATE and SECURE BACKYARD at the rear where kids can safely roam, including another toilet in the laundry. ENTERTAINMENT AREAS have a choice of both up-lighting or down lights to suit your mood. Take a relaxing stroll around the lake or if you just want to settle into a sofa, switch on the uplights for a cinema effect and make use of the broad selection of DVDs or use our FREE WIFI. If you feel like going out, take the short stroll down to the CITY CENTRE for all the central attractions
From the front gate, the cafés, restaurants and thriving arts scene, including Ulumbarra Theatre, of the vibrant city centre are within easy walking distance. My favorite route is straight down Bridge Street (Lake House is on the street) leading directly to the botanic gardens and retail centre. For something different, you can take a talking tourist tram into the city centre from the Weeroona Lake terminal (less than a minute walk from the front gate of the Lake House)
CAFE'S - FOOD SCENE - COFFEE LOVERS
The Lake House is surrounded by a range of quaint cafés and other eating options. At adjoining Lake Weeroona you can treat yourself to a relaxed breakfast at the board-walk Café right on the waters edge (see photos)
A walk around this popular lake is a great way to connect with locals. On the lake boundary, check out the delicious treats at Flavours (ice creamery / café), or if you're in a hurry, grab a drive-through coffee and snack at the Golden Bean. Lovers of quality coffee can choose from a range of establishments within walking distance, including a few quirky and well patronised cafés. The vendor selling coffee from the orange van by the lake has great reviews and devoted clientèle
If fish-n-chips is more your mood, try the fresh seafood take-away beside Flavours or melt in with the locals at the corner shop and pub about 100m up the road. A short stroll along Bridge Street towards the city centre will take you to the Bridge Hotel with counter meals, fine dining restaurant and options to eat alfresco under elm trees
From the Bridge Hotel, it's a quick walk through the Chinese precinct into the vibrant city centre where one can explore historic buildings, restaurants, arts precinct and the exceptional landscaped gardens of Rosalind Park
TALKING TOURIST TRAMS
Bendigo's iconic talking tourist trams roll past the front windows of the Lake House (see photo) as they travel along Bridge Street, around part of the lake and into the city centre. Each tram has a unique design and colour. You can catch a tram ride of a few minutes into the city centre and back to the Lake House (disembark at the Weeroona Lake terminal which is in view of the Lake House)
The paths around Lake Weeroona form part of the excellent network of regional cycling tracks that wind throughout the town and extend into the surrounding countryside. The lake is a great start and end point
HOSPITAL (round the corner - 2 minute walk)
The new Bendigo Hospital Precinct, the largest regional health project in Australia delivering world class healthcare, is located just around the corner in Bendigo's medical hub. The Lake House is ideally positioned for anyone looking after or visiting friends and family undergoing medical treatment
SPORTING VENUES, SHOW GROUNDS & FARMERS MARKET
The Lake House is situated beside the main sporting strip with the Tennis Centre opposite the lake, followed by the Tom Flood Sports Centre, Aquatic Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Sporting Complex. The nearby show grounds are the venue for a food / bric-a-brac market every Sunday from about 9am to 12noon. Other events are often held at the grounds, particularly on weekends (music festivals, swap meets, wool show, antique car show and others). The Bendigo Farmers Market, located beside the court house, is held on the second Saturday of the month from 9am - 1pm, go early for the best local produce.
