Black Hill Reserve


The Black Hill Reserve has, over many years, been used as a popular viewing point over Ballarat, but in recent times it has become a focal point for downhill mountain bike riding. 

The City of Ballarat's support for developing this reserve for downhill mountain bike riding and events played a significant role in driving the development of a master plan for this area.

Following extensive community consultation, which provided the City of Ballarat will a clear indication of the community's thoughts, ideas and priorities, the Black Hill Reserve Master Plan was finalised and adopted in 2014.
