Bendoc is a small town 10km kilometers from the Vic/NSW border. In the 1800's, Bendoc was a mining centre, but today it is primarily farming and forestry.
Bendoc is 103Km from Orbost, along the Bonang Hwy. Bendoc can also be accessed from Bombala in NSW.

While the Bendoc area is not noted for its bird-life, there is a considerable range of bush species. Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo are quite common in the area, as are Satin Bowerbirds and Lyrebirds. Brown Thornbill can be abundant in the right habitat, as well as White Browed Scrubwrens, Superb Fairwrens and Flame Robin.
The Bonang Hwy is also a good spot for birding. White Throated Nightjar and Barn Owl can be seen in the early morning, and Wonga Pigeon, Eastern Yellow Robin and Lyrebird during the day.
