Bendigo Sports Star Hall of Fame

Visit the Bendigo Sports Star Hall of Fame!


Since 1965, the Bendigo community has acknowledged and celebrated the sporting achievements of local athletes who continue to excel at a state, national and international level through the auspices of the Bendigo’s Sports Star Awards.

The awards are the longest running community sporting awards in Australia, and were born out of a commitment to recognise the talent that exists within the region.

The Sports Star Association has united the local business, media and sporting community in a way that is unique, and the awards continue to grow and prosper as more talent is unearthed, and more great moments and achievements a recognised.

The Hall of Frame was introduced in 1993 and gives us an opportunity to look back and reflect on others and their lifetime of achievements and service to sport and to the Bendigo community.


The Hall of Fame at Red Energy Arena was installed in 2019 and showcases every awarded Sport Star of the Year from Bendigo. The list of sports star winners is as long as it is exhilarating. 

World, national and state champions join Olympic and Commonwealth Games competitors who have served their city, their region, their state and their state and their country to the best of their ability. 


Visit the Sports Star Hall of Fame whilst attending events at Red Energy Arena, or take a self-guided tour Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm.
