Everything Else

Made of Ballarat

Discover what Ballarat is made of.

Ours isn’t a city you just seek out – it’s a place made to try on and revel in.

It’s a place where each day is made of daring adventures, earthly treasures and lingering heritage. And each night is made of rich indulgence, startling sights and fusing cultures.

Our winding streets are made for idle wandering, filled with experiences made to conquer. Our evolving culture is made from worldly people – creators of artistry made to ponder.

Each plate we fill is piled high with freshness, and each drop we sip is liquid gold. And, sure, our past may have put us on the map, but each new day sees fresh fortunes unfold.

It’s why the best quests, the fondest memories, the richest flavours and fullest stories aren’t made of moments spent at home; they’re made of Ballarat.
