- In 2012 I moved back to my home town of Ballarat in Victoria, Australia. Join me as I re-discover Ballarat, one of Victoria's largest inland cities, famous for the Goldfields. You may be a resident, tourist or new comer to Ballarat. I hope to provide you with useful information about Ballarat as I re-discover my home town. I will also provide information on places which are a short drive from Ballarat. So residents and visitors come and discover Ballarat with me.

A visit to the Visitors Information Centre
Yesterday I took a visit to the Visitors Information Centre in Ballarat. I was greeted by friendly staff members that were more than happy to explain the centre and what it had to offer. Not only can you find a variety of information about Ballarat, but you can also find out more about places to visit in Melbourne and greater Victoria. I came home with a handful of brochures to assist my journey as I 'Discover My Ballarat'. The lady assisting me also gave me a list of places that I can take the kids to which will be useful. They also sell souvenirs and you can obtain maps on Ballarat. Today I learnt that the Ballarat Visitors Information Centre is not only useful for tourists, but residents as well. Watch out Ballarat, here I come!
