Popped up to Black Hill lookout to take in the scenery and a view over Ballarat. Nice views to be had although it is not too high up. Some of the walking paths are a bit overgrown. But a great view.

Looking at Ballarat from this vantage point takes you back to what it must have been like a hundred or more years ago.

Just a short drive from the town and the vista opens to reveal great views over Ballarat and the hinterland. It is worth two trips, one each in daylight and another after sunset.

Looming high over the city of Ballarat, the lookout is situated in an old gold diggings area.Views abound in all directions over the city and local ranges. A great view and perspective of the city.
