If you have not been to Ballarat lately or, God forbid, ever, the weekend of 27-28 May is the best time for a visit. It is Ballarat Heritage Weekend time.

'Unravel the mystery, discover the history' is a catchphrase that caters to all tastes and ages. Who, in their right mind, does not like a mystery, a murder, a secret, a treasure or treasure hunt to boot? Yes, you are absolutely right, no one.

Thus, I call out to all of you to get in your cars, on the trains, on the buses and take yourself and your loved ones to Ballarat on this cold May weekend. You will not be disappointed.

There will be tours of buildings around Ballarat. There will be behind the scenes tours of the famous TV shows (Doctor Blake Mysteries). Plus, there will be 'murder tours', cemetery tours and all other possible tours to do with scary, spooky and macabre.

Many art exhibitions, yummy food and aromatic coffee, gold mines and gold rush memories will be all there for you to immerse yourself in history, in mystery, in local art and culture.

I dare you to spend a day or a whole weekend in Ballarat. And do not forget to bring back lots of pictures.

Entry to most events are free. Some events require booking and payment. Please see the program for more information.
