The convenor of the Bendigo Regional Branch is Sarah Mayor Cox.


Bendigo residents recently had the chance to enjoy Sam the Story Tram, which ran through Bendigo to the Central Deborah Gold Mine, and provided amazing stories as free entertainment for families. The tram ran daily at 10am in the week leading up to the Bendigo Writers Festival. It was booked out almost as soon as bookings went online. Cecile Shanaghan, Jenny Mitchell, Sue King-Smith and Sandra Harvey helped to coordinate the program for preschoolers. The La Trobe University tram was decorated, and Narelle Stone, Bendigo’s best-loved storyteller led the daily trips.
