Ballarat is situated about 110 kilometers northwest of Melbourne. The town is found close to the Great Dividing Range and the Yarrowee River. It is the third most populated place in the state. The town is named after a Scotsman who used the area as a sheep run, and was named Ballarat in 1837 from the Aboriginal word meaning ‘resting place’.
The gold rush in 1851 led to a transformation of a sheep station into a main settlement consisting of over 20,000 people. The demand for gold lasted decades and led to many innovations relating to mining being developed here including a mine cage and Chilean mill. The influx of so many people also created a legacy of culture that is still visible to this day both in terms of architecture of Her Majesty’s theater, as well as in the art found in the art gallery, the country’s largest and oldest gallery. After a period of decline as the gold began to run out, the town’s fortunes changed as demand for housing grew in the interwar period. The town was also home to the 1956 summer Olympics for kayaking and rowing events
