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.


The City of Ballarat acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land we live and work on, the Wadawurrung and Dja Dja Wurrung People, and recognises their continuing connection to the land and waterways. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
