Ballarat is filled with stunning physical marks of its full and fascinating past, through the grand old buildings we frequent every day. However, when you sip your coffee at your favourite cafe or stare at the four walls of your office, have you ever pondered what stories lie behind the walls, or what quirky characters inhabited the space when it was originally built?
Cure your curiosities and immerse yourself in the intriguing at the 2016 Ballarat Heritage Weekend. Held over the Mother's Day weekend (7-8 May 2016), this free event will celebrate Ballarat's more peculiar past, with the theme of 'Curiouser and Curiouser'. Think steampunk and steam trains, quirky stories from the past, frivolous fashion and speakeasy style.
Weird and wacky contraption demonstrations, unique vintage car displays and special performances will bring the streets to life! Enjoy live music, adventurous new food and beverage experiences and don't miss the Vintage Fashion Fair, Chocolate Melt Away Festival and Tweed Ride!
There will be something on offer for all ages, including horse and carriage rides, historical tours and curiosity trails.
