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.

School Holiday Idea - Happy Jacks Play World

I had a lovely afternoon at Happy Jacks Play World with the two kids today.  My son quickly made friends and got lost in the playground having a ball.  My youngest daughter had a play in the toddler play area for (0-3 years) and then went head first down the Jumping Castle slide.  Little dare devil.  She laughed all the way down.  Next, I took her down the big slide and the child in me came out.  We had to do it again!

If you want to have some fun with the kids indoors during the winter weather or are visiting Ballarat, it is always nice to pop into Happy Jacks Play World for a play and a bite to eat in their cafe.
