“Gorgeous architecture.”
Review of Lydiard Street

Lydiard Street
Ranked #8 of 75 things to do in Ballarat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Worth the amble down this street - if only to be awed not only by the beautiful gold-boom period buildings, but to see the ugly 1960s buildings mingling there in a period when there was a lapse of judgement about buildings that should be demolished.

A walk along Lydiard Street for a block either side of main street (Sturt St) gives a good idea of how Ballarat would have looked years ago and provides a good perspective of local architecture from 1800s and early 1900s. Unfortunately interspersed with later 20th century structures. Is easy stroll off Sturt St which in itself has a number of historic buildings and churches plus numerous memorials in centre median strip.

That Ballarat is a gold rush town is evident in all the old buildings that line this charming street all the way to the train station. Must stroll down the street slowly to relish the architecture and the history of the place. A stand out is the art museum and the old Regent theatre. Highly recommended.
