Ballarat’s Historic Peel Street


The stories surrounding Ballarat’s historic Peel Street South are being captured on film.

The City of Ballarat received a grant, as part of the Australian Government ‘Your Community Heritage’ grant program, to fi lm the community’s memories of the strip of shops and houses in Peel Street South that are currently being restored.

The film is capturing memories of the people who lived and worked there as well as include historical information about the buildings, one which dates from around the time of the Eureka Stockade.

The project aims to show that repairs to even the most dilapidated of heritage buildings are achievable and even though they may not look like it, even derelict and unused heritage places mean something to the community.
