The Bendigo VRI, red brick, single- storey Federation-style building has been a place used by the local community for nearly 100 years. Originally the facility opened in 1915 but with the ensuing restrictions on new non-essential buildings brought about by World War One, the current building was not complete until 1924.

- Billiards and Snooker tables and equipment for use
- Social dancing
