Bendigo Voted Best Aussie Town of 2024

Bendigo, the place to be.

Bendigo, Victoria, has once again proven itself to be a gem among Australian towns, taking home the prestigious title of Aussie Town of the Year 2024 by renowned travel company Wotif. For the team at Cosmo, this announcement fills us with immense pride, as Bendigo is not just any town; it's where our journey began.

Founded in early 2019 by a group of friends managing properties for loved ones in Bendigo, Cosmo was born out of a desire to streamline short-term rental management using innovative technology. From our humble beginnings in Bendigo to our current headquarters in Cremorne, our roots are firmly planted in this vibrant Victorian city.

Bendigo's charm lies in its rich history dating back to the gold rush era, coupled with its modern additions and cultural vibrancy. The city boasts a thriving arts scene, exemplified by the Bendigo Art Gallery, which in 2022 hosted an exclusive four-month Elvis Presley exhibition in partnership with Graceland. This event welcomed 219,000 attendees through its doors, attracting visitors from all across the country, with 87% of tickets sold to out-of-town visitors.

At Cosmo, our extensive portfolio of short-term rental properties in Bendigo reflects the diversity and allure of the city. Whether you're seeking a tranquil country escape or a stylish home in the heart of town, we have the perfect accommodation to suit your needs. Our properties span across Bendigo, offering guests a glimpse into the city's rich tapestry of history, architecture, and natural beauty. From exploring historic landmarks and grand architecture to indulging in the region's world-class food and wine scene, there's something for everyone in this bustling city.
