DAI Gum Loong’s incredible journey from dream to reality is almost complete.

Our latest Chinese imperial dragon was this week officially blessed in a spectacular display of colour and tradition as his journey to Bendigo edges ever closer.

City of Greater Bendigo mayor Margaret O’Rourke was joined by Golden Dragon Museum general manager Anita Jack in Hong Kong for the ceremony, the latest chapter in a journey which will culminate in Bendigo’s most spectacular Easter parade yet.
