Live music, fine food, craft beer plus elite and extreme sports will be the focus of Ballarat’s bumper line-up of events this February. In a coup for the city, Mars Stadium will host live-action sports spectacular Nitro Circus on Saturday 29 February. The Ballarat event is already the best-selling regional Australian show in Nitro’s 10-year history.
Ballarat’s summer calendar of events also features Rock Ballarat (7-9 February), Super Sunday of Sport (16 February) and the family-friendly Ballarat Beer Festival (15 February). And while you’re in Ballarat entertain the kids at Sovereign Hill, Kryal Castle and the Art Gallery of Ballarat; explore the great outdoors at the Lake Wendouree Adventure Playground; cuddle a koala at the Ballarat Wildlife Park, and indulge in an icy cold treat at Il Piccolo Gelato.
“There’s no better way to spend your summer than in Ballarat,” City of Ballarat Mayor Cr Ben Taylor said. Find out more about what’s happening in Ballarat this summer, and at visitballarat.com.au
