Conservation of a Heritage Place or Historic Collection (Private) - Special Commendation

The Provincial, 121 Lydiard Street North, Ballarat
Owner: D. Fraser

The historic Provincial  Hotel has returned to its former glory on the outside with a new contemporary interior on the inside after being in a derelict state for over a decade.  The visionary owners have injected life into this important historic building through a substantial commitment.  The owners have arranged a full re-render, replacing moulds that had deteriorated over the years  and applying multiple coats of paint using colours that are sympathetic to the building.  They have also found a contemporary use for the building which will have wide benefits for Ballarat.  A true transformation to a strategically significant state-listed building and a significant outcome for a key Ballarat landmark.  The future of the Provincial has been assured.
