A new way to explore central Ballarat on two-wheels

Whenever we are visiting Ballarat, we always make sure to start the day with a walk around Lake Wendouree. The track that circumferences the glassy lake surface is the domain of determined walkers, huffing runners, chatty mothers and black swans with attitude. Now there’s a new way to explore the lake with the addition of e-bikes from Neuron.

The new Neuron e-bikes are available on a first-come, first-served basis from the Ballarat Railway Station,¬†until the end of summer. Another option for exploring the route, for those who don’t have their own bike, is Ballarat Bike Hire, which need to be booked ahead of time.

The Lake Wendouree Loop Ride is 10km in length, starting off with a winding tour of the back streets of Soldiers Hill before reaching the shared path around the edge of the lake.

The full loop takes about 1.5 to 2hrs, but you will need some extra time to stop off for lunch, take in the Botanical Gardens and get some shots of the extremely photogenic boat sheds. Consider extending the ride with side trails for the Arch of Victory and Victoria Park. See more options for your visit to Ballarat here.
