Dai Gum San precinct
The Chinese called the rich goldfields in the heart of Victoria Dai Gum San, Big Gold Mountain. A place of untold wealth and promise. Today, Dai Gum San is again rich as the Chinese Cultural Centre of Australia. Where wealth was once measured in gold, it now sits in the deep history left behind by those early Chinese miners. The precinct spans the historic Bendigo creek and glitters with golden pavers and colourful Chinese symbolism.
The Dai Gum San’s main feature is a giant, five metre lotus flower providing seating for visitors and also doubles as a step between the upper and lower plazas.
