    Ballarat

    March 29, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 20 °C

    3 nights free camping at Haddon Lions Park, about 15 minutes outside Ballarat. Great spot with toilets, potable water and only about 3 vans.

    Because we did the Gold Mine tour in Bendigo, we decided to skip Sovereign Hill. Reviews seemed to indicate it was overpriced and dated so we were happy to save our money. We walked the heritage streetscape of Lydiard Street, visited the Eureka Stockade Museum, Lake Wendouree, Botanical Gardens, War Memorial, Arch of Victory and Mill Markets. I enjoyed the Eureka Stockade Museum and got a good photo of what's left of the actual Eureka Flag that is on display. The flag is huge...about 4x3m. Lots of missing bits as they were cut up and given as souvenirs.

    Getting colder still...5 - 27°
