Ballarat

Dec 17, 18  Ballarat is about 90 minutes north west of Melbourne and is famous for its part in the history of the Victorian gold rush with its Soveriegn Hill historical gold mining site. It was also the site of the Eureka Stackade rebellion where 30 miners lost their lives in 1854. Unfortunately, it rained solidly for the 2 days we were in Ballarat so we could not visit any of the historical sites … perhaps next time.
