About italktravel Bendigo


Italktravel Bendigo has a long history of servicing the travel needs of residents in Regional Victoria dating back to 1993 when we began the family-owned business, then known as Southern Cross Travel.

Originally located in Pall Mall, we later moved to our current location in Wood St, joining our transport and tour partners, and expanding our travel offerings to include local transit, Statewide and Interstate tours, school camps and much more.

In 2015 we joined the italktravel family (as a member of the Independent Travel Group) and together with our committed and well-travelled consultants, we combine over 40 years of experience in the travel industry with a focus on service excellence.

Still a family operated business and under new management, we continue to pride ourselves on our friendly and professional advice, aiming to deliver a personalised and enjoyable travel experience for our customers every single time. 

Whether it is domestic or international airfares and travel arrangements, accommodation, carefully planned itineraries, tours, cruises, car rental, rail, ski, group or corporate travel, visas and travel insurance including foreign currency, our experienced consultants can take the guesswork and stress out of arranging your travel requirements, giving you the freedom to focus on your holiday experience.

We look forward to welcoming you into our italktravel family and sharing our travel expertise with you soon.
