Alfredton is a residential and industrial area on the outskirts of Ballarat, one km south-west of Lake Wendouree. The name was given to the district probably in honour of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh and second son of Queen Victoria, who visited Australian in 1867-68. A school which had been opened there in 1868 was named Western Public School Ballarat, but it adopted the name Alfredton in the early 1870s.
