Ballarat was one of the prettiest cities I went to in Australia. I just love that Victorian architecture.
Ballarat was settled in 1838 and when gold was found the town boomed. At nearby Sovereign Hill you can get a feel of what a mining town was like.
Other attractions in Ballarat include some fine gardens and Lake Wendouree - great for a relaxing afternoon
