Ballarat's Colourful Culture

The rolling green hills and valleys of the Central Highlands form the backdrop for the thriving inland city of Ballarat in Victoria. The unique architecture hints at the established culture of creativity and arts in Ballarat, and further exploration of the city's galleries and exhibition centres will reveal the true depth of this culture.
