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.

Ballarat Begonia Festival (9th March to 11 March 2013) - Lake Wendouree

Today I ventured down to Lake Wendouree with my sister and children to check out the Ballarat Begonia Festival.  We had a fun day viewing the beautiful flowers and enjoying the many and varied activities that were available.  Enjoy my pictures from today.  Click on an image to enlarge.
