Trzebnica Kuzniczysko i Stary Mlyn

Ballarat - Victoria - a sleepy town with a turbulent past

Ballarat in Victoria must be one of the prettiest towns I have recently visited. The manicured lawns, the tranquil lake in the middle of the town, the black swan. I think I could easily live there. It is close enough to a large city and it looks…
