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.

Gold Rush Mini Golf & The Amazing Mill Markets - Ballarat

Hole in one!
This week, my gorgeous family of four visited Gold Rush Mini Golf and The Amazing Mill Markets.  Mini Golf is a great family activity and at Gold Rush Mini Golf, they have both an indoor and outdoor course (both 18 holes), so that you can play regardless of the weather.  I can proudly say that I scored the best this time round and my 6 year old Sean got a hole in one!
The indoor course can get a little scarey for the youngsters with it's glow in the dark parts, big gorilla, dinosaurs and pirattes, but we just encouraged our almost 2 year old to go on and we helped her have her turns.  I am looking forward to better weather to use the outside Gold Rush course this Summer.  It looks great.

Did you know that Gold Rush Mini Golf also has an Arcade room, outdoor seating with BBQ facilities, function/conference room and 30 seat cafe with fire place?  Well it does!  Plus they also provide tourist information for those visiting Ballarat.
Once we left Mini Golf, we walked across the gravel road to the Amazing Mill Markets where they have Australia's largest mix of collectables, retro fashions, antiques, vintage, industrial, art & home decor and jewellery.  I was amazed and interested at the things we saw.  In some stalls, it was like stepping back in time. There are so many stalls all undercover and they even have a cafe if you want to spend some time there. I came home with a nice little piece for my coffee table and I will definetly go back there again.
