LGBT+ Friendly 3 Day Tour The Grampians, Daylesford & Ballarat

This is a private LGBT+ tour experience. <br><br>Visit some of Victoria lesser know, but equally as beautiful areas. From the 'Gay Capital' of Australia - Daylesford, discover some its hidden charms, colourful locals and diverse shops and restaurants.<br><br>The tour highlight is Grampians National Park. Whilst similar to that of the Blue Mountains in Sydney, this National Park is often wrongly overlooked. It requires slightly more effort to reach, but once there, you will be glad of the effort. We will kangaroo's in the wild, experience local Aboriginal custom and visit some incredible lookouts, walking tracks and waterfalls. You really will be at one, with Mother Nature.<br><br>En-route back to Melbourne on the final day, we will stop in at the historic town of Ballarat and visit some of its best loved visitor attractions.

My wife I undertook the guided tour led by Sue, a very knowledgeable host who shared a lot of the development of Ballarat from the first gold being discovered to the growth of the city around the Gold Rush. Lots of examples of the gold nuggets that have been found in the area and people that have helped the miners through their cause, including the development of mining practices including steam. Certainly worth a visit!

We were going to go to the Eureka tour and Blood on the Cross at night but it was so expensive. I had been before but not my husband. Instead, we went to the museum. What a surprise. So modern and light and there was a photographic show too. So much to see and read. Oh! I got inside the cage for the miners to go down below. I wonder how many this cage was supposed to carry? Just me and it was full up. A wonderful place and very reasonably priced.

I thought I'd pop in to the Gold Museum last week because I hadn't been for years. WOW!!! It's so different now!! Think museum meets art gallery, it has all these different sections with displays of artifacts, paintings, photographs, an entire Hansom cab and replica horse, plus SO much more! Oh, and of course lots of gold!! There is a mini cinema showing lots of short info pieces about relevant topics, I sat through all of those! It may not look like a huge building on the outside but once you get inside and start looking at everything...what I thought would take an hour or so took about 2 1/2 hours to see!! It was great!! Go and see it!!!!

We visited the Gold Museum during a family trip to Ballarat. We didn’t take the package deal as it was overpriced. The museum was also a bit overpriced to our liking but offered good educational value especially for kids.
