Mapping Ballarat’s Historic Urban Landscape

Ballarat’s landscape today is the culmination of thousands of years of land management and change, not least the gold mining story which is of national significance. It is a layered, complex and nuanced landscape unique from other places. As the municipality prepares for future planning challenges through the Ballarat Strategy – Today, Tomorrow, Together, it recognises that it is vital that the cultural and social values attributed to this urban landscape are retained, revitalised and celebrated.
