Weekends in Ballarat

There's no better way to weekend than in Ballarat this autumn.

Experience the very best of regional Victoria in Ballarat. Just over an hour from Melbourne by car or train, you'll find there's so much to experience that you may need to extend your stay. 

Our weekends are full of open studios, paddock to plate dining, exclusive art exhibitions, award-winning wineries, beautiful architecture, meandering outdoor walks through the autumn leaves and long afternoons enjoying our craft beer (and gin and cider) scene.

Plan yours now...
