Move to Ballarat

Ballaarat, the city’s original spelling, is derived from the Wadawurrung words ‘balla’ and ‘arat’, meaning ‘resting place’.

Rather appropriate for a city that warmly beckons one and all to settle in, take a load off and establish a lifestyle defined by community, pleasure and purpose.

Bestowed as the most liveable regional city in Australia, it’s easy to see why so many visitors end up becoming long-term residents.

If you too have visited the city recently and have a yearning to make it your home, then let us help you get started.

Visit and you’ll find everything you need to start planning your next move.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
