The history of Ballarat and district's hotels and publicans.
Ballarat was the centre of one of the world's richest goldfields, and thousands of hotels were opened in the city and its surrounding districts. Some of these hotels are still operating, others are still standing but used for other purposes, but most have disappeared completely. This wiki records the history of all these hotels, and the people who lived and worked in them.

Currently (November 2017) there are 1191 Ballarat and district hotels listed in the indexes. This is a work in progress, and new information is being added everyday as different sources are checked. If you can't find what you want today, it maybe added tomorrow, so please keep checking.

This wiki began in November 2016, based on earlier work on the Ballarat and District Industrial Heritage Project.
