Marong is a township that is part of the Bendigo Shire Council and 17 kilometres (15-minute drive) west of Bendigo City Centre. While the population is small (Census 2011 – 311), it is fast growing and developing into a great suburb that is ready to boom.
The town has a long history of farming and outside of new housing developments, is surrounded by rural properties, which are either working farms or lifestyle properties, contributing to the laid-back lifestyle and fresh air. The great thing about Marong is you will be away from the madding crowds and never battle for parking.
The Marong Family Hotel is on your door step, with entertainment, a great atmosphere and spectacular menu that caters for all budgets and tastes. It was voted to have the best beer garden in Victoria and Trip Advisor has awarded it the certificate of excellence for a consistent number of positive reviews.
For outdoor lovers, the town boasts its own football team, golf club, out of town rifle range and a cricket club. The kids can be entertained on hot days at the Marong Swimming Pool, open during the summer months. The region has plenty of bushland reserves for picnics, walks and bird watching.
There is also a primary school and kindergarten offering after school care and long day care, a post office, general store, town hall and a CFA and SES facility. The Marong Medical Practice provides residents access to bulk billing medical care, pathology and dental during week days.
The town is serviced by public transport with access to employment in the City of Bendigo and the good new is that Marong is now NBN ready!
