Built on the riches of the gold rush, this town's bones is a remnant of a time gone by. Beauitiful old stone buildings and magnificient colonial hotels line the streets. The old picture palace with the statue of the roman centurian on top remind us of the former glory of this town. What a precious piece of Australian history!

This art gallery has works in it that are the envy of some bigger galleries. A must see if you're in Ballarat and want to see all it has to offer. The gift shop also has some lovely pieces to purchase.

This Art Gallery was amazing & some of the art they had, Lindseys, Boyds, Richardsons, Blackmans, Clfford Possum & Hans Heysen to name a few, were wonderful to see. They also had sculptures, modern art, photographic displays etc etc, so much to see & it was quite big so do allocate to take the time out for a good luck. It was all beautifully presented & afterwards sit down in their coffee shop to chat about it all & drink good coffee & eat delicious food. A must do & see!

I was very impressed by the quality of old masters on exhibit here - by the local artists. There were fabulous painters all around the world.
