Majestic streets and imposing architecture set the scene for an unforgettable, yet modern journey in Ballarat and the surrounding historic villages.

It's where art, culture, gardens and events take on a life of their own.  A place steeped in the history of the Eureka Rebellion and the golden era of the 1850s. The rolling hills are alive with food, fashion, and boutique accommodation hideaways - a treasure around every corner. Come and explore the new and the old - where vintage is the way of life. It's eclectic. It's hip. It's all happening here.

SLOW DOWN

Stroll galleries. Admire marble statues or the iconic Avenue of Honour. Get carried away at the theatre. Sip locally-produced wine. Linger over a coffee and book. Explore the power of democracy. Indulge in a food degustation experience. Rest overnight in an historic hotel.

GEAR IT UP A NOTCH

Play golf. Pat native Australian animals. Watch brave knights joust. Hire a bike. Satisfy your sweet tooth with boiled Raspberry Drops. Race go-karts. Sleep over in a memory-making-family caravan park.

EXPLORE FURTHER

On the edge of the city is a plethora of charming townships. See places like Learmonth, Talbot, Smeaton, Creswick, Buninyong, Scarsdale, Clunes, Smythesdale and Blampied - all with their own character and charm.
