Magpie co-captain, Geva Mentor loved The Boardwalk Bendigo, which has large tables outdoor, great for groups to eat a lovely meal by the lake, followed by a walk. The restaurant also has an extensive children’s menu, so the whole family will be happy. She also mentioned the bakeries in town for a coffee and snack before or after the game is a must do for our supporters attending or spending the weekend in Bendigo.

Most importantly, Mentor raved about Bendigo Stadium and its facilities.

“The stadium has an amazing layout for our supporters with a great bar for food and drink, and ample parking. I encourage everyone to come see what the city and stadium have to offer," Mentor told
