Lydiard Street – Ten Delightful Tales

Ever since Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Day in 1887, when the foundations stones of the Art Gallery, Old Colonists and the Mining Exchange were all laid, Lydiard Street has delighted Ballaratians. And visitors.


The Ten Delightful Tales series of booklets has a simple purpose. It  is designed to highlight the joys of community life in Ballarat’s over the last 170 years. 

Rain, hail or shine, parades, picnics, sports, monster meetings, rallies, carnivals, concerts, orations, fund raising events, school events, Ballarat’s irrepressible joie de vie, shines through in all these vibrant, joyful occasions. 

And to be blunt, at this point in our history, we need a large dose of optimism. Fortunately It was not hard to find joyous stories in Ballarat’s amazing history. Enjoy reading them with a cup of tea or coffee and a lovely piece of a favourite Ballarat recipe -raspberry coconut slice, often called Amy Johnson slice.
