Two events to add to your calendar this spring

Visit Ballarat

28 Sep 2021

Filed underSee & Do

It’s been a long time between catch ups with many of our friends and family, and while things aren’t quite back to normal, we’re glad you can escape the house to visit us here in Ballarat. 

From exclusive exhibitions to haunting mazes, there’s plenty worth travelling for this spring.

1000 Doors
Until 24 October

Art installation 1000 Doors – Door Within A Door is now open in Ballarat. The large-scale, interactive, maze-like installation has popped-up by the Ballarat Town Hall, and will run until 24 October.  

According to the artists behind the seemingly endless series of doors, Christian Wagstaff and Keith Courtney, 1000 Doors is “limited only by the imagination and decided only by an action”.

1000 Doors was sold out at the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Brisbane Festival, and the Adelaide Fringe Festival, so get your crew together and book your $10 tickets ASAP. 

Ballarat International Foto Biennale
Until 9 January

Headlined by exclusive never-before-seen photographs, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale is the only chance you will have to see works by American photographer Linda McCartney.  

Linda McCartney: Retrospective showcases some of the most iconic artists and moments from the 1960s music scene alongside intimate family portraits, including a series of prints from the McCartney’s time to Australia between 1975 and 1993.  

Known for her portraits of Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, among many others, she was the first female photographer whose work was featured as the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in 1968, with a portrait of Eric Clapton.
