Built on the irresistible glitter of gold, Ballarat’s stately old buildings tell the story of the city.
Victoria’s largest inland city is a boomtown fairytale. Scratch the surface and you might find treasures of your own. Explore 19th-century streets where time stopped the moment iron lace was added to the broad verandas. But there’s more to Ballarat than history. A pretty lake, rambling parklands, excellent dining and traditional corner pubs make this regional gem worth unearthing.
