Ballarat and Accommodation
Ballarat is a city of stature, elegance and tremendous history.
The City of Ballarat is one of the largest inland cities in Australia, with a population of over
84,000. Strategically located in the Central Highlands Region of Victoria, Ballarat is approximately 110 km north-west of Melbourne, the State capital. Travel time between Ballarat and Melbourne is around 75 minutes, and less to Tullamarine International Airport.
To really get into the historic atmosphere in Ballarat, book one of the beautifully restored and stylish hotels, bed and breakfasts or cottages bedecked with antiques that abound in and around Ballarat for a weekend of tranquil indulgence.
Sometimes when travelling with children, there are certain types of accommodation that are more family-friendly. Ballarat is renowned as a family holiday destination and most of our accommodation businesses will gladly provide a port a cot or highchair – you simply need to ask.
Many of Ballarat’s miner’s cottages and traditional pubs have been updated to cater for modern tastes so while from the outside all appears as it was during the 1850s gold rush, the interior of such establishments has been fully renovated with all the mod-cons.
Immerse yourself in 19th century opulence at a grand Victorian residence. Allow your wishes to be your host's command, as you warm your toes by the magnificent, ornate fireplace or simply fill the spacious claw-foot bath with hot water, bath salts and forget your responsibilities for a while.
