Our family enjoyed our tram ride thanks to Neville the tram driver he's very passionate about what he's doing, very informative and he made the experience interactive by letting my kids participate in what he's do...
The conductors on the trams and in the museum were very informative and excellent with our young children (2 & 4).

Really helps the kids put it into perspective.
It is a simple stretch of road but the feel is overwhelming as you think of what those men and women and their families endured for us.

Gave us fantastic information on where to go and what tours to take, and while we were chatting with staff our kids coloured in the little child friendly section to keep them entertained.
I was visiting Ballarat and was wondering what to do with the kids.

Beautiful castle with lots of things to do, loved watching the horses and jousting and everything is really kid friendly and interactive as well, it's a little on the pricey side though
... particularly the pantomime acts and the wizard show inside the wizards tower was well done immersive and interactive for our kids the wizard did a terrific job easily holding the kids attention throughout.

Terrific to see it continue to renew and the whole family lived the show and its history.
... whether the show would be value for money we decided afterwards it was well worth the expense Our son, who is interested in history, loved the whole experience and raved about it afterwards to friends and family.

The amendments are terrific and there is so much space so that even if there is a lot of people there you can still find a spot under shade and a place for the kids to run and play.
A new playground has recently opened which is fantastic for families.

This is a great museum with friendly staff, a great cafe and a fabulous park and play area outside for the kids (big and small).
A great highlight of our week in Ballarat on family holiday was visiting this museum to see the Eureka Stockade put into the content of worldwide democracy, Well worth the visit.

Great for a family run place and the hot weather we had did make the birds to hide in the trees.
I would highly recommend anyone with kids to get out to bird world Ballarat.
