Ballarat is steeped in history, but it's during this annual Ballarat Heritage Weekend in May where residents and visitors are encouraged to turn back the clock and celebrate our rich cultural heritage and world class buildings.

This year, join the Ballarat Heritage Weekend on a journey that will evoke your 'childhood memories'. Think pedal cars, dolls, carousels, puppet shows, classic cars, trains as well as Heritage Weekend favourites such as talks and tours, high tea, vintage bus rides and horse and carriage rides.

Once again, the doors will be open to some of Ballarat's finest heritage buildings - many of which are only available during this one weekend in May - so take this special opportunity to discover some of Ballarat's architectural treasures.

With many exciting events to enjoy, come along and discover Ballarat - especially the hidden Ballarat you've never had the chance to explore.

Ballarat is a stone's throw away from Melbourne - just over an hour by rail or road.
