Let's get Ballarat back to business

As we head into Christmas, it’s important to think local in everything we do.

Whether that’s signing up to a gym as part of a New Year’s resolution, booking a favourite restaurant for a celebration or ordering a hand-made item from a Ballarat shop.

Over the next few pages, we go behind the scenes to meet some of Ballarat’s most resilient and resourceful business owners.

From gyms and beauty salons to cafés, travel agents and manufacturing, each of these businesses have adapted and pivoted throughout the pandemic to stay afloat.

And now more than ever before, Ballarat businesses need our support.

Let’s buy local and support #christmasinballarat
