Ballarat CC gets green light

A multi-million dollar convention centre and hotel has been announced for Ballarat.

The Victoria State Government has confirmed financial support of $AU25 million towards development of the Ballarat Station Precinct, an integrated convention and exhibition centre with large, flexible spaces for exhibitions and conferences, alongside a 100-room hotel with retail and restaurant offerings.

The announcement heralds a game changer for business events in Victoria, says Visit Ballarat general manager marketing, Louise Laing, speaking at the Visit Victoria Trade Mission in Melbourne last week.

‘This gives us an opportunity to provide a “big city” facility in our beautiful regional centre, and it will complement all the attractions we have here.’
