Ballarat Family Guide
They say it takes a village to raise a child, but some days that village is hard to find, especially these days, in a world of super busy schedules and way too much information online! As busy mums ourselves, we know how valuable & precious time is, and as Ballarat locals, we know how passionate people are about the beautiful city we call home.
So we’ve created the Ballarat Family Guide to help busy parents stay afloat of all the amazing products, wonderful services, exciting events and important issues for families happening out there in the land of Ballarat. And we’ve also provided some handy information for visitors too! We want you to love your stay in Ballarat as much as we love living here.
We are mums who love to work with technology, share info with our followers and also have a bit of financial freedom, so you will see some paid content on this site and a bit of advertising to help us continue to provide this comprehensive hub of useful stuff, but rest assured that ANYTHING you see is 100% legitimate, local and relevant to families. We are sure you will love it! And if you don’t, please, get in touch and let us know what we can do to help.
