Got gold fever? You’re not alone. Thousands of people came to the boom town of Ballarat in the 1850s to seek their fortune, so it’s only right that you’d come here, too. After all, this is where the first flecks of wealth were found at—oh, the irony—Poverty Point.
Located just 110km northwest of Melbourne, Ballarat has retained much of its boom-town charm. Its name comes from the Wathaurong Aboriginal word for “resting place”, and this town is no slouch when it comes to old-timey fun, antique shopping and (believe it or not) plenty of fine art. Armed with your stir-fry wok that doubles as a great gold pan, you’re ready for our flights to Ballarat. You’ll have the best-tasting gold in town.
Just like the old days, Ballarat runs on horsepower. Check out our car hire options, hail a cab or jump on the visitor shuttle bus that hits most of the town’s best attractions. Or just BYO mining car. And lay your own track. And bring a buddy to push.
Hmm. How about a bike instead?
Are you on one of the Ballarat flights that land in the morning? Then head to Ballarat Wildlife Park and gawk at the animals while they’re most active. If you land in the afternoon, don your corset or top hat (or both, we don’t judge) and check out the recreated boom town of Sovereign Hill.
Touching down after dark? Grab some medieval-era grub and watch a jousting match at Kryal Castle. What? Don’t all gold mining towns have a medieval castle? When you’ve had your last tankard of mead, check into one of our Ballarat hotels and sleep it off. Ned Stark would be proud. #thenorthremembers
