Top tips for finding the perfect Ballarat hotel

  • If you want to be near Sovereign Hill, Ballarat’s biggest attraction, pick Sovereign Hill Hotel, a 4-star property built in the colonial style that is only a few steps from the site. Sovereign Hill is an open-air museum illustrating Ballarat from the 1850s, when it was a gold mining settlement.

The colourful gardens occupy an impressive area that is divided into sections, making it an ideal place for a relaxing day at any time of the year. You can also walk along Prime Ministers Avenue, which is lined with the bronze busts of all Australian Prime Ministers, or visit the Ex-Prisoners of War Memorial in the South Gardens. You can reach that area in 2 minutes via car from Bell Tower Inn, which is surrounded by gardens and features a pool and spa.
