Ballarat City

Ballarat is Victoria’s largest and grandest inland city. It is also home to the most prominent political rebellion on the gold fields, the Eureka Stockade of December 1854. A product of the gold rushes, by 1871 Ballarat boasted a population of almost 50,000, from many parts of the world, well over twice that of its nearby rival, Bendigo.  From the 1860s to the 1930s it revelled in being Australia’s largest inland city, with notable bluestone buildings, most of which survive to this day.
