Re: timetable for trains to Ballarat

if you are by chance arriving by plane there is a shuttle bus directly from Tullamarine airport to Ballarat - you walk out to the median strip in front of the terminal and look for a helper in a green jacket, he will tell you where to wait, there are many busses leaving from there. I think the bus runs every 2 hours on week days. It costs $25 one way and $45 for a return ticket.

Travel Tips for Ballarat

History, Nature and more.

by Kate-Me

Sovereign Hill would be the first place I'd recommend to any arriving visitor. It's the best place to start and learn about how the city was founded. When I'm away from Ballarat I miss seeing Lake Wendouree with all its activities: walkers, joggers, runners, cyclists, people with dogs, families with prams. I miss seeing all the black swans and ducks and generally the nice surroundings of the lake.

Gold Museum: Normandy Nugget on loan display

by Kate-Me

Currently at the Gold Museum the Normandy Nugget is on display until the end of July.
It is owned by Newmont Australia, one of the largest gold mining companies in Australia (and the world).

It weighs 819 oz (about 25 kgs)
It is the 26th largest nugget ever found, and is the second largest intact nugget in the world (as almost all the others have been melted down, apart from the Welcome Nugget (2217 oz, found in Ballarat in 1858 and living on display in a casino in Las Vegas)

Mt Buninyong

by Kate-Me

The township of Buninyong, only approx 10 kms from Ballarat, has historic buildings and quaint shops, and also Mt Buninyong, 719 mts high. From its high metal tower, one can have a commanding view of the surrounding area for over 60 kms in some directions. On a very clear day it's just possible to see the top of Melbourne (90 kms distant). Also currently many koalas to be seen in the natural bushland on the mountain. Watch for birdlife too. You can also take a walk to the extinct volcanic crater.

Sovereign Hill, very touristy, but great to visit.

The Lake

by dlandt

During the Melbourne Olympics of 1956, they held several of the open water competitions in Ballarat because it had the best layout for a course. That layout is there and waiting for your enjoyment, as well as new friends. That is, if you have the bread. Get the picture?
