a beautiful historic town. the charm of the place is breathtaking. the lake is a jewel. lots to see and do. great choice of restaurants and cafes to suit any appetite. art gallery, art deco movie theatre. its a beautiful place
Ballarat was built on the back of the gold rush, so it's architecture is mostly from the same period and very grand. By far the single biggest attraction is Sovereign Hill, a historic re-creation of the gold rush and the dramatic events around the Eureka Stockade. Take the two-day package with the evening show, you won't be disappointed. Tremendous value-for-money; and it's real, not a Disney fake-up. There is a good selection of accommodation and getting around is easy. Some grand old pubs for food and drink, lots to see if you admire Victorian civil architecture, but the jewel is definitely Sovereign Hill.
We only stayed 4 days but had enough time to spend at Ballarat Wildlife Park, Sunday Market, Pancake Kitchen, Gold Rush Indoor & Outdoor Mini Golf, Sovereign Hill, Hogs Breath Cafe, Regent Cinema & Kryal Castle.
Sovereign Hill experience was a great one since my last visit as a kid 20yrs ago! Food scene in Ballarat has been surprising in the most pleasant ways :) Yellow Espresso and Webster Cafe were both great for brunch. The Forge was top choice for pizza and pasta. Had one of the best carbornara - a simple staple made excellent!
I knew it was going to be cold and was prepared for it. We went in and out of town via taxi. Taxi driver on the way home asked for directions on how to get to our accommodation. Why aren’t taxis fitted with GPS!
I loved the town and the people I met. Walking around was a good way to see the central city. The town is full of beautiful old buildings from its heyday as a gold rush town and the street with all the monuments is a beautiful walk and read. There are lots of unique shops and places to stop in for a beverage of your choice. And what a surprise to find a authentic Spanish restaurant! The Wildlife Park should be on anyone's list, though. It's wonderful! And because of Facebook, it was the reason I came to Ballarat. Discovering the town was an unexpected bonus. However, the lack and/or convenience of public transport was a big disappointment. I did not have a car and I also walk with a cane, so it would have been nice to have a hop-on hop-off trolley with a day pass option as so many other places have. The system and cost of obtaining a bus ticket is guaranteed to discourage tourists! I could have used the very expensive taxis, but that's not the way to see things. There were many parts of town that I missed because of this. I did find the Tourism Office (on my own) and they were very helpful. I came away with the impression that the residents and local government were surprised that someone from the USA, or any other place, would be interested in Ballarat. That's a real shame.

It was a fantastic place, great location and good value. Denise greeted us on arrival and made us feel right at home. The chocolates and fruit were a very lovely surprise. My family and I are so glad we stayed here. It's comfy, with free wifi and Netflix which worked great for the night time It's out of the Ballarat town but close enough and not too far from necessities. It's a too min drive to sovereign Hill and other attractions.

Excellent service! We stayed for two nights in a Queen room in the main hotel, and one night in the new apartments on Seymour St. Both were clean and comfortable, and the staff made us feel very welcome, going above and beyond. :)
