Ballarat Cemeteries Eureka Remembrance Ceremony

The graves of the soldiers and miners who were killed at that battle are interred within the Ballarat Old Cemetery and this ceremony is an annual event that recognises the happenings at Eureka in 1854.

The ceremony will commence at the entrance gates with redcoats and miners lead by the Mayor of Ballarat walking to the two memorial gravesites, followed by the naming of those who died at the battle. The ceremony will also include flag raising at each memorial.

These gravesites and their monuments are now recorded on the Register of the National Estate and Heritage listed in Victoria.
