Goldfields Antiques and Collectables
All roads lead to Ballarat over the Victorian Labour Day Long Weekend, the 8th to 10th March, for the annual Ballarat Antique Fair.
The Victorian goldfields are the source of a great many antiques and artefacts and this event attracts dealers from around the country.

The Fair showcases not only locally sourced items but a range of jewellery, porcelain, prints, furniture and collectables from around the world.
This year will introduce for the first time the Vintage Bridal Exhibition, displaying a selection of vintage wedding gowns and highlighting the evolution of the wedding dress over the years and the influence of past eras on present day design.
