The Area: Ballarat, Victoria

A city with its roots steeped in gold, Ballarat still exhibits its rich beginnings in the grandeur of the Victorian-era architecture that forms the city centre. Any trip is incomplete without a visit to the re-created gold-mining village at Sovereign Hill. Take a trip back in time to the 1860s and test out panning skills in the stream littered with tiny treasures or explore the original equipment and mine shaft. Be sure to head inside an old-style lolly shop for a sweet treat to enjoy while taking in the nightly sound-and-light show, Blood on the Southern Cross.

Recently opened, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka is soon becoming one of Ballarat’s must-see attractions. Situated on the site of the Eureka Rebellion, this museum features displays that recreate the events of 1854 and examine the impact they had on democracy in Australia and beyond. For something with a little more age behind it head to the oldest provincial gallery in Australia – the Art Gallery of Ballarat, established in 1884. See early colonial paintings including works from celebrated Australian artists like Tom Roberts, Fred Williams and Sir Sydney Nolan. Stop by for a free guided tour at 2pm Wednesday to Sunday.
