Ballarat’s cool-climate might make for some chilly winter days, but it also works to create some profoundly rich natural surroundings.

Many a time when friends and family visit my neck of the (literal) woods, they can’t help but comment on the lushness of the land, the green that surrounds and the serenity that abounds – regardless of the season.

And while my hometown is best known for its heritage, its burgeoning food scene, and of course its gold-rush history, there’s no doubt the great outdoors play a part in the creation of its marvel.

So if you’re thinking of hitting up Ballarat and harnessing your inner-adventurer, take a look at the itinerary below and start planning your special outdoor adventure.
