Ballarat Cemeteries Historical Tour – Ballarat Heritage Weekend
Have you been on a CEMETERY TOUR before? … maybe not, but you want to know how it came to have the best view in town, an undulating botanical feel with over 2,500 roses and over 130,000 former residents interred there currently. What has been going on at the 55 acre patch of land for the last 150 years?
You’ll be surprised, you might gasp at the historical stories, you’ll learn about a time when the burial rate was at an all-time high and why and where and who have resided in the Ballarat General Cemetery now and forever, at you backdoor.
A not to be missed tour as part of Ballarat Heritage Weekend!
