Ballarat is a regional city located approximately 105 kilometres west-north-west of Melbourne, Victoria. Ballarat has an estimated urban area population of just over 94,000 people and is the third most populous urban area in Victoria.
Ballarat is a popular destination for those seeking a more relaxed lifestyle. Because of this the Rural Lifestyle Expo was first run in March 2012 to provide an opportunity for those already living on lifestyle blocks, and those thinking of moving to a regional area, to gather information and ideas on how they could make better use of and maintain their property.
