Ballarat, Victoria

Hi Folks, we are in Ballarat, and having such a wonderful time, we have extended our stay twice so far! We arrived here last Wednesday evening - 7pm actually - after having the repairs on two windows in our van completed; we also had to have one of the rear tail-lights repaired as it was not working properly. 

Ballarat is such a gorgeous place, much larger then Bendogo. Evidence of the vast amounts of money poured into the city, during the Gold rush, in the 1850s is everywhere, a time when the streets were truly paved with gold!  Huge wonderful old buildings abound, but, more of that to come in later posting.  We are off, now for a tootle in the countryside.  Til next posting, look after yourselves, or find someone that will. :)
