Ballarat

Steeped in history, Ballarat is Victoria's largest inland city and the site of the world's largest deposit of alluvial gold.

Golden dreams
Explore the legacy of the gold rush, still evident in the magnificent architecture and tree-lined streets of the town today. Admire the city's Victorian and Edwardian buildings, parks, gardens, statues, and churches by following one of the visitor information centre's self-guided heritage walks.

Blood on the tracks
Pan for gold and watch the hustle and bustle of an 1850s gold mining settlement at Sovereign Hill. Don't miss the dramatic Blood on the Southern Cross sound and light show, recreating the story of the Eureka Rebellion.

Out and about
Spend a day enjoying the fantastic collection of Australian art and the original Eureka flag at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, Australia's oldest and largest regional gallery. Catch a show at Her Majesty's Theatre, originally opened in 1875, and wander through specialty shops stocking everything from boutique clothing and books to homewares, crafts and homemade supplies.
