Dedicated Assistance Dog Relief Area

City of Ballarat has installed a guide and assistance dog toileting area in central Ballarat. Increasing awareness about the needs of people with guide and assistance dogs is also a key feature of this project.

The City of Ballarat is proud to partner with Regional Development Victoria, through support from the Living Local Fund, for this project.

A temporary art installation titled ‘Inclusive Ballarat’ will be designed with community members and installed as part of the broader project by the end of 2023.
