Main Road Mural

Main Road Mural by Ballarat artist Travis Price was commissioned as part of the redevelopment of one of Ballart’s oldest streets, Main Road. Price depicts the pubs, traders, a fight club and Ballarat’s first Chinese restaurant that were residents of the overcrowded jumble of muddy streets in the mid 19th century now known as Main Road. He also acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Ballarat the Wadawurrung people.

Main Road, as its name suggests, was one of the main entries to the mining areas of East Ballarat and an important part of Ballarat’s civic heart. In the short section of Main Road between Bridge Mall and Humffray Street South there were once more than six licenced pubs which were popular venues for large public meetings where residents came to listen to political candidates in the lead up to local elections.

Price has created a number of murals in Ballarat including Hop Queen in Hop Lane (off Armstrong street) in the CBD.

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.
