Buninyong

Buninyong

The pretty township of Buninyong lies at the foot of landmark Mt Buninyong, 11KM south of Ballarat in Victoria.

Surrounded by a precious belt of farmlands and wooded ridges, Buninyong treasures the beauty of its natural environment and the picturesque gold-era buildings and gardens which give it an old-world tranquillity and charm. At the same time, its contemporary cafes, shops, markets, festivals and amenities all contribute to a spirited community life in the peace and beauty of the countryside.

Royal South Street

Royal South Street

The Royal South Street annual Eisteddfod is run primarily by volunteers. Its members and friends give generously of their spare time to encourage enjoyment and excellence in the performing arts. We do this by way of competition, festival, concert, publicity, and even guest speakers. We aim to help aspiring Australians from three year olds to adults. The Society is the longest operating competition in Australia.
Sovereign Hill

Sovereign Hill

Sovereign Hill is administered by The Sovereign Hill Museums Association - a not-for-profit, community-based organisation. The Association is controlled by a Board elected by members and serving in a voluntary capacity. Management is in the hands of an Executive Director and professional staff. In all, some 350 people are employed, and their work is supported by over 250 volunteers who help bring the Outdoor Museum to life and assist the Gold Museum with its curatorial work and tour guiding.
