Take a walk on the Eureka Trail


Begin your trail enjoying the architecture of Ballarat’s Lydiard Street and wind your way along the banks of the Yarrowee River to the site of the original Eureka Stockade.

This 3.5 kilometre walk follows the route taken by police and soldiers from the Police Camp in the early hours of December 3, 1854 to put an end to the uprising of the miners.


The revolt was over in 15 minutes and more than 30 miners were killed.

Along the trail you will discover intact miners’ cottages and interpretive signs along the trail explain the major features and historic sites.

Duration: 1 hour.

Start: Lydiard Street, Ballarat (the Post Office is where the Police Camp was situated).
