BALLARAT has long been defined as the heart of Australia’s goldfields, where history and heritage remain among its strongest drawcards. As an inherently creative and innovative city, we invite you to host your next business event in Ballarat.
BALLARAT has long-defined as being at the heart of Australia’s goldfields, where history and heritage remain among its strongest drawcards. But the city is perpetually showcasing those products and experiences that synonymise Ballarat not only with gold, but with an array of contemporary and diverse offerings, making the city an ideal year-round option for events of all kinds. As an inherently creative and innovative city, Ballarat celebrates this through its recognition as a UNESCO Creative City for Craft and Folk Art. It is a city built on a rich past, from its strong First Nations culture, to a 19th century global rush for gold, to a 20th century exploration of its own story and narrative. The city is a melting pot of diverse traditional skills in a highly intact historic city. Coupled with heritage and culture focus, the venues and gathering places on offer provide a unique experience to all involved.. Situated just over an hour west of Melbourne, Ballarat’s close proximity to the city makes it one of Victoria’s most appealing events destinations.

Ballarat is also a one-hour drive from Victoria’s two major international airports, Melbourne Airport and Geelong’s Avalon Airport.
