If you are looking for somewhere to stay, give this place a ring. There was plenty to see and eat in ballarat, loads of opshops, cafes, antique warehouses, craft shops and parks. On our way home on sunday we drove to Maldon(near Castlemaine),another old mining town, and browsed a very lovely handmade market and had lunch in the sun before slowly driving back home.
I am going to do a part 2 of our stay in ballarat, with the opshop finds!
Here is the website for this accomodation, Lalor Cottage Ballarat
Ok, well see you soon.
