The City of Bendigo was a Local Government Area which covered the central area and inner western suburbs of the regional city of Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. The shire covered an area of 32.53 square kilometres (12.6 sq mi), and existed from 1855 until 1994.
The City of Bendigo was first incorporated as the Sandhurst Municipality on 24 April 1855, and became a borough on 11 September 1863 and a City on 21 July 1871. It was renamed from Sandhurst to Bendigo on 8 May 1891.
On 7 April 1994, the City was abolished—one of the first to disappear under the Kennett Liberal government's statewide local government restructuring program—and merged with the Borough of Eaglehawk, the Shires of Huntly and Strathfieldsaye and the Rural City of Marong to form the City of Greater Bendigo.
Bendigo was divided into three wards, each of which elected three councillors:
- Barkly Ward
- Darling Ward
- Sutton Ward
