Ballarat’s future is in our hands. And working together, we can do great things.

– Gorgi Coghlan


Our people are what makes Ballarat unique.

Our people are contributing to a new cultural fabric, a rich tapestry of threads that are moving our city forwards.

We are active. We are carers. We are learners, teachers and curious.

We are makers, artists and creators. We are generous. We are compassionate.

We are ambitious. We are so excited for our future.

We are Ballarat.
