City of Ballarat

The City of Ballarat is proud to be supporting the Commonwealth Games through its Gold Medal Sponsorship which will see Ballarat gold hang proudly around the necks of the Commonwealth’s top athletes.

Ballarat, only an hour from Melbourne, is a vibrant, modern regional city set against a dramatic and proud gold rush heritage.  The City is also gateway to vineyards and spa country, spectacular countryside, including the Otways, Great Ocean Road and the rugged central goldfields.

In the 1850’s people from all over the world brought their dreams and aspiration to the Ballarat goldfields.  The thrill of striking gold will take on new meaning in March 2006, but a meaning that will again bring the world community to our door, will again grab at the heart of each of us and that we will again long to be a part.
