Ballarat Heritage Weekend

The Ballarat Heritage Weekend delivers an immersive, engaging and fascinating blend of the past with the present, celebrating all that is unique about this city.

Walking tours, horse and carriage rides and steam trains make seeing everything Ballarat has to offer an experience in itself. 

Why not take in an exhibition in some of the region’s best art galleries or be entertained by street and stage performances telling tales from Ballarat’s history?

Be an avid spectator at the Tweed Ride or be blown away by some of the best facial hair since the gold rush in the Ballarat Beard and Stache Competition.

If vintage fashion is more to your liking, you won’t want to miss the Ballarat Apron Festival or the fashion shows, displays and markets.
