Being Victoria’s third largest city, Ballarat has no shortage of things to see and do. Famous for the prosperous gold rush in the 1800’s, Ballarat is dotted with opulent buildings of yesteryear.

Immerse yourself in the rich history of the city at Sovereign Hill, the living and breathing museum takes you back to a time when gold lined the streets. Learn to pan for gold, explore the old mines and stay for the incredible sound and light show that takes you back to the Eureka Stockade.  

Take yourself back to the 21st century and stroll along walking tracks at Mount Buninyong, which is situated just outside the main township. Bring a picnic to enjoy while you’re there and take in the stunning views of the surrounding grasslands.
