    Central Square: On the hill

    by iandsmith Updated Dec 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shadowy street

    This is another place that they've blocked off and made pedestrian friendly. In the heart of the city at Central Square Shopping Centre, you'll find everything from music to food, diamonds to juice bars and fashion to home wares. Parking is convenient in the adjacent multi-storey undercover car park that has around 600 spaces.

    Bridge Street Mall: Old style, modern outlook

    by iandsmith Written Dec 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Colourful front

    This isn't just a shop, rather obviously, it's a whole couple of blocks of shops. With the majority of old style fronts retained, you can enjoy the individuality of each shop but still have parking nearby. Other towns could take note.
    Chuck in a couple of trees and there you have it. All the shops you want, some variation in architecture and a relaxed atmosphere.

    various: Sturt Street

    by Kate-Me Written Sep 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sturt Street is Ballarat's main street, and at the city end, for 2 - 3 kms is also one of its main shopping streets. I particularly like it for
    its historic shop and other buildings.
    This photo is taken halfway up Sturt Street looking back at the city and the Town Hall.

    Voyage of Discovery: Bridge Mall shopping Centre

    by Kate-Me Updated Feb 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bridge Mall

    This is a very interesting store stocking gifts from Australia and many other places. Everything from chinaware to toys, to crystals and home furnishings and indian style rayon clothes. The goods in the store are all arrayed in a very attractive and colourful fashion.

    What to buy: Not necessarily in this shop, but most tourists probably go first for the Australian soft toys. At the Sovereign Hill Gold Museum gift shop, there are many crystal and gold plated tiny Australian animals for sale which are quite unique. Then there is a Global Village/community aid abroad style shop in Armstrong Street North which sells boomerangs at a much more realistic price than the Gold Museum could ever match.

    What to pay: At the Global shop you should be able to buy a small decorated boomerang for about $10- $12.
    Prices of other things vary. Indian material dresses are popular so tends to be still more expensive than other clothing.
