About Me

Ballarat, Victoria, Australia
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 stroll by the lake

Yesterday afternoon, I took a stroll with the kids at Lake Wendouree and we saw many little hidden delights along the way.

I had never seen one of these ducks at the lake before.  
One passer by told me it was a male Musk Duck.

Another family of swans.  I cannot believe the parents let us get this close.

The beautiful surrounds of Lake Wendouree

It is great to see rowers back on the lake.

  1. Aren't the baby swans just adorable? Saw so many the other day... Don't know how anyone could think of them as "ugly ducklings" :-)
