Despite being only 6 Ks from Bendigo city centre, Eaglehawk was a very separate town from Bendigo until recent times. Both areas grew mightily from the Gold rush of the 1850's.
From Bendigo to Eaglehawk one can still see the remnants of mining days. Small mining cottages through to Mine managers grander houses.
In between was the Ironbark Range which was the area bush-rangers held up those travelling to Bendigo or vice verso for their gold.. Once Eaglehawk got its own Post office and Banks the locals did not go to Bendigo. They also had their own Municipal Council. The Borough of Eaglehawk.
The poorer miners stayed in this region - fossicking or alluvial mining (surface) in what was known as the Whipstick Forest. Eaglehawk was their town.
They came in for their Entertainment and supplies. Opera singers came to our Town Hall and on Sundays there was a street Market in High St. Was a thriving community until World War 2.
Eaglehawk then went into a sort of sleep period reviving in the 80's. Now of course part of the Bendigo urban area.
The Borough of Eaglehawk Council was lost in the regions restructure of Local Government and is now part of the City of Greater Bendigo.
Despite that, Eaglehawk people still proudly claim they are from the BOROUGH.
Lovely Neangar golf Club is close by.

Look forward to hosting you.

Delightful! Hosts are attentive whilst not intrusive; room and facilities are well set up and private; walking distance to a cold beer, an evening meal or a bakery for lunch; convenient location for travel to the north & west.

Host made us feel extremely welcome with a personal greeting. Room was clean, tidy and equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Host was willing to go above and beyond with nothing feeling like a hassle. Ideal location and private area. Description was accurate and the additional directions that were given made it easy to find. Very happy with our stay.

We were made very welcome - like family. The room was big (high ceilings) and very clean. Once we settled in we came and went for 2 days and 2 nights and didn't bump into anyone else - just felt like home. Easy to find.

As I have in the folder - one only has to ask - for anything, and I will try and accommodate. I do have several reading lights I could have provided.

I go to Bendigo each year at the same time for a soccer competition with my son, but previously I always stayed in a hotel. Our entire week-end experience was so much better because of Willi's warmth, beautiful home, generously stocked room and overall her clear communication. We exchanged text messages as I was in and out for games and soccer barbeque. We also communicated via email prior to my arrival for directions and timing my arrival. I simply could not say enough positive things about Willi.

Response from Willi:
Was a pleasure to have had Lesly & Patrick. Always so good to have reliable airbnb people. I sent Lesly phone message re the split system advising had to be set on heat and where the controller was situated.!! It wasn't cold. . Having experienced such a long hot summer I had left it on cold as we still had warm weather. Though did get a bit chilly one night. I'll keep it in mind for the next people and make sure that the setting is correct for whatever weather is in store. If we can ever judge that!!

Willi User Profile

I'm a retired Arts/Antique/Valuer. My parents migrated from the Netherlands ( Nederland).
My early childhood was in Amsterdam and later urban Melbourne. I worked in office admin, and latterly as a P/A. This was excellent training for our own business.
I married Kev. He was a schoolteacher and was on part time study leave to gain his Diploma of Art.
This resulted in a love of Australian Art for both of us. Kev left teaching in 1979.
I had opened an Antique shop in 1967 but closed it in latter 68 due to No 3 baby joining the clan.
We seriously began our Antique & Arts business in 1977 and once Kev left teaching we began importing Antiques initially from he UK and later France, Indonesia, Vietnam and Argentina.
We also operated an Art Gallery dealing in Australian Art. Mainly graphics. With our accumulated knowledge and experience were appointed Valuers by the Commonwealth Government for their
Gifts bequests program. I was a Councillor with Local Government for 18 yrs. (Non political)
We are now retired. Enjoy travel, reading, dinner parties, writing.
Love watching late night SBS films, my form of Yoga. Both of us great documentary watchers.
We enjoy going Outback - part of the gray nomad mob. Have Off Rd van.
Kev loves fishing and cooking which are not my favorite pass times.
I have lots of Outback info and travel tales.
We live with our Cat "Megs" in downstairs part of house.
Well away from the very comfortable upstairs room.
