A beautifully preserved street scene from the 1800s except for modern cars and parking.
The buildings reflect how rich Ballarat was at the height of the goldmining era.

Raining today and we did not feel like walking in the rain so we drove down this very interesting street and found it sufficiently of interest to drove back down the other way to get the full experience - need to go slow to take it all in

We came here on the train and strolled down Lydiard street. It is a beautifully preserved streetscape from the 1880s. Very interesting buildings. According to our guide, the end of the street near the station had the surface level raised by about one storey. Have a walk along both sides and from the station to the university so that you get the whole picture.
