10 things to love about Ballarat
Ballarat has beauty, history and vibrancy, but according to our local guide, it’s the people that really make this a place to visit. Here, Roger tells us what there is to do and see in Ballarat.
- Name: Roger Henstridge
- Position: RACV Ballarat shop manager
- Years in Ballarat: 28
- Why he loves it: Ballarat has the feel and warmth of a big country town but the facilities of a large city. If you need to travel to Melbourne for a day trip or to the football it’s an hour by train to the CBD. Ballarat has a terrific climate if you don’t mind the cold.
- Absolute Favourite: Are the people. In my job I deal with a wide variety of people from all walks of life and they all contribute to the growing cosmopolitan atmosphere of Ballarat.
