"I’ve lived in central Ballarat for 21 years."
"Our children have just finished their education
in Ballarat. It’s a beautiful education city with many private and public schools and universities. We’re very spoilt. The schools are amazing."
"We’ve got amazing places to walk; Mount Buninyong and all these lovely places that we can go walking and bike riding. We’re also so close to Melbourne. It’s just so good to get on the train and you’re in the middle of the CBD. The beach is just an hour away as well. We’re very spoilt being so close to everything."
We certainly are spoilt for choice Angela, we are so much More Than Gold.
So many hidden gems spotted all around our amazing region.
Our burgeoning foodie scene is ever evolving and offering new and exciting venues to visit.

Ballaarat with a Double A, this is no typo! Prior to pastoral settlement in 1837 Aboriginal people inhabited the land in the area which was to become known as Ballarat. This word is of native origin from “Balla” and “Arat” meaning ‘resting place’. We pay homage to this long history ✨
"Our business, Le Peche Gourmand, is unique, classical and traditional. We really stick to doing classic French patisserie-style food. For six years we’ve had this business. I’ve got a great work-life balance because I’ve got a young family."
"We do enjoy living here. Creswick is the next mountain bike hub. I’m a keen mountain biker
and they’re about to start a project next year, with just shy of $3 million to spend on mountain bike trails, so it’s going to be a massive boom in this town in the coming years with people coming from all over Australia."
You NEED to put @lepechegourmand on your list for this weekend

We know dietary requirements sometimes mean you can’t have what everyone else is having, that’s why our alternative milks are priced the same as cow’s milk.

"I’ve lived in Mount Pleasant for about three years. I was from Rushworth, a little town the other side of Bendigo and moved here for uni, and have just stayed. Now I'm an accountant in Ballarat."
"I still wanted to have that country-town feel, but not in the big city, and Ballarat gave me that option. It’s got that sort of in-between feel, just that right balance."
"Business is growing here, so we’re really busy. It’s enabled me to find a good job and get involved in community sports."

"We’ve got some great agricultural industries here. We’ve got really beautiful red volcanic soil out where we live, so there are lots of farms, including dairy, wheat, sheep, beef, pigs and market gardeners. There’s pretty much everything around here, including wine!"
Cheers to that Rachel! 🍷
