Visiting Ballarat

Ballarat is situated just over an hour's drive on the Western Freeway from Melbourne.

Visitors arriving by air into Melbourne can continue on to Ballarat by taking the Ballarat Airport Shuttle Bus, which runs a number of daily services. Bookings are recommended.

V/Line runs trains daily to Ballarat from Southern Cross Station (formerly Spencer Street Station), Melbourne. Travel time is around one and half hours' but with the construction of the fast train network on the Ballarat line this time has been reduced significantly for peak usage trains.
