Ballarat Sports & Outdoors: 1 reviews and 0 photos
Ballarat is quite a sporting city, whether for the sportsman or the sports watcher.
All summer long, there is cricket, then Autumn/Winter/Spring, football dominates.
Of lesser fame is Basketball and we have a very good basketball stadium. There are 3 major swimming pools: 1 at the University of Ballarat at Mt Helen (limited hours), 1 for the general public indoors in Gillies St (YMCA) and the outdoor slightly heated Eureka Pool in Eureka Street.
Walking or cycling around Lake Wendouree (6 km) is a very popular activity. The lake itself is often used for rowing events.
Netball is a popular sport, and there are several disciplines of martial arts taught in Ballarat.
There is also an indoor go-kart track and much much more (but don't ask me, I'm not a sporting person)
Equipment: Depending on what sport you want to do. Bikes can be brought up from Melbourne on the train, but there isn' t a lot of provision made for them.
