The historical Australian city of Ballarat is situated just over an hour by rail or road to the west of the state capital of Melbourne. Ballarat was founded during the gold rush of the 1850s and is often identified as the birthplace of Australian democracy. The city’s rich history – both literally and figuratively – is preserved in its historic buildings, streetscapes, tourist attractions and art gallery.
