Useful information on Ballarat
With tourism as one of its major industries, Ballarat is a city worth adding to your hire car itinerary. The city is rich in history, centred around the gold rush of the 1850s. Modern attractions such as art galleries, botanical gardens, and reptile parks will make your stay in Ballarat memorable.
Ballarat became a bustling hub of activity back in the 1850's during the Gold Rush. The first gold was found just 5 km north of the city and it has been estimated that over 200,000 ounces of gold came out of this one mine. This ensured that Ballarat played a major part in the Victorian Gold Rush.
Ballarat was home to the Eureka Stockade in 1854. The stockade was a protest by the goldfield workers, 'the diggers' against the government imposed miners licenses. Boiling point was reached in late November when the stockade was built. There followed a battle that saw many men stand trial on sedition and high treason charges.
This protest is often labelled as the birth of Australian Democracy. Take a drive around Ballarat in your CarHire.com.au hire car and discover the history of Ballarat.
