Sitting within the Central Highlands of Victoria are the perfect pieces of house and land, Ballarat. Located just over 100 kilometres north-west of Melbourne’s CBD, Ballarat is the state’s third largest city. Well-known for its rich heritage surrounding the Gold Rush, the city still celebrates its history in the form of buildings, fountains and tourist attractions.
When you’re considering purchasing house and land, Ballarat is the right choice for many reasons. Firstly, it’s home to a range of new estates where your family will easily settle in. You might choose to call Alfredton Central or Alfredton Grove ‘home’. Or maybe Yorkdale, Winterfield or Springs Rise will take your fancy. Of course, you can’t overlook Ploughmans Arms, Pinnacle, Newmarque or Mt View. With all this choice, you’ll be sure to find somewhere that can offer you the perfect lifestyle.
Beyond house and land, Ballarat is special for so many other reasons. An extensive range of education options means your kids will be well equipped no matter which stage of life they’re at. From childcare, pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools and universities, everyone is catered for.
The region is also bursting with parks and recreational facilities. Lake Wendouree is only a few kilometres out of Ballarat’s city centre. Here, you’ll be able to admire the local wildlife as you walk or ride around the Steve Moneghetti track. Or, marvel in the trees, statues and glasshouse displays at Ballarat Botanical Gardens. This lakeside beauty was designed and created back in the 1860s – and the benefits are still present today.
Only minutes from the CBD sits Black Hill Reserve. A patch of parkland with amazing views over Ballarat, it still features the remnants of open cut and shaft mining. Another one for the history buffs is Mount Buninyong. An extinct volcano, Mount Buninyong has a picnic area, walking tracks and an impressive lookout tower.
If you’re buying in this region, it’s also important to know that there’s plenty of local amenities near your house and land. Ballarat more than delivers on this front. A V/Line service runs to Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station each day, and buses and coaches let you explore more of country Victoria and Melbourne.
Truly proving there’s something for everyone, Ballarat offers a shopping experience which gives big cities a run for their money. Bridge Mall Shopping Centre is charming and eclectic, while all your favourite brands are at Central Square Ballarat and Stockland Wendouree. As a local, it’s also hard to resist all the food and produce in the weekly markets. Delicious!
