Ballarat near Melbourne – Worth the Visit?

We have been to Ballart - an old European-style town in Melbourne. Is it worth the visit? Read our experience here.

Ballarat, the gold rush city, is one of the oldest cities in Australia and it looks like it too. Gold was found here already in the early days of colonization in Australia, and people in the gold rush settled here very early.

Anyone in the area can enjoy the city and the original center, where the life of the gold seekers took place. It has been authentically preserved. This well-visited attraction is located on Sovereign Hill in Ballarat.

We wouldn’t suggest to drive all the way here, but we would definitely stop again if it’s on the road.

UPDATE: The map and street view below shows the Sovereign Hill. Thanks for the tip!
