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.
