Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Perhaps due to its fascinating past and equally astonishing present, the Victorian gold rush town of Ballarat catches the quintessence of Victorian Australia - the curious old homes; the old tramcars; the coffee palace; the Cobb & Co office; the gardens and the people. No narration. Suitable for upper primary and lower secondary levels.
