LOCATION & THINGS TO DO
Western Hotel is located in the heart of Ballarat which provides guests with easy access to some of Ballarat’s most iconic attractions.
> Take a stroll through the 150-year-old Ballarat Botanical Gardens. The gardens are home to some magnificent historic trees which are beautifully maintained – always filled with greenness and colour. Tourists can enjoy the historic tram ride which is run by volunteers and will be sure to provide good fun. Lake Wendouree is a short walk across the road.
> Right in the heart of Ballarat is Lake Wendouree, a big lake that is ideal for fishing, walking (6 km loop) or just enjoying the beautiful views. The Southside is the best for avoiding the cool breezes and soaking up the winter sun. Plenty of water birds to look at and swans are a popular attraction. There is a large playground and picnic areas for families to enjoy.
> Sovereign Hill offers demonstrations of blacksmithing and wheelwright crafting, panning for gold, a mine tour, and live theater. The place is very popular, and crowds tend to form around noon, so we suggest arriving early to avoid the big crowds.
> Get up close and personal with some of Australia’s favourite animals at Ballarat Wildlife Park. Worth a visit if you have kids, and plan for a 90-minute stay if possible too.
