Each year Ballarat holds a Heritage Weekend over the Mothers' Day weekend. This year there will be tours from our Branch and many more activities coordinated by the Ballarat City Council.
The Ballarat Branch is the Trust’s voice in the region. The Branch works with council and the community on local heritage issues. New members are always welcome at any of the Branch’s meetings and events.
Come and meet the Branch on 27th & 28th May 2017 as they host tours for the Ballarat Heritage Weekend.

Ballarat Railway Redvelopment
The Branch is working closely with the National Trust's Conservation and Advocacy Team to campaign for the sympathetic redevelopment of the Ballarat Railway precinct. Contact the Branch for more information.
The Branch holds regular working bees to maintain this site with support from the neighbouring landholder. Information on those buried on the site can be found on the Trust's Heritage Register.
