We Are Ballarat is a rally cry to you, our wonderful Ballarat locals, to get behind – and celebrate – our great city.
Because We Are Ballarat. We Are ALL Ballarat. And together we will create the Ballarat of tomorrow.
Everything we love to do is better when we experience it with our favourite people.
So, let’s invite them all here and show off what our city has to offer.
Ballarat – better when we’re together.
What are your favourite local places to visit and things to do when your friends or family visit?
My plans always revolve around food, let’s be honest. The Hydrant is perfect for brunch and a cheeky coffee. I can’t go past The Forge for lunch followed by an afternoon cocktail at Roy Hammond and dinner at Ragazzone or Moon and Mountain.
Do you have any spots you love to show off?
I think we take the beautiful Ballarat Botanical Gardens for granted sometimes! It’s a lovely spot to go for a picnic, fish and chips and a kick of the footy.
