Bendigo has received the tick of approval from the Australian National Commission for UNESCO, as the city continues its bid to join its Creative Cities Network as a City of Gastronomy.

The application is now making its way to UNESCO's headquarters in Paris, where it will be considered alongside others from around the world.

If successful, Bendigo will join a range of cities around the world with the title, including Bergen, Phuket, Tucson and Panama City. 

It's expected Council will hear the results of their application come November this year.
