The Ballarat Heritage Awards were first launched in 2010, a key recommendation of Council’s ‘Preserving Our Heritage Strategy’.
The awards are held by the City of Ballarat in partnership with the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) and the local Ballarat Branch of the National Trust. They provide an opportunity to say thank you to the many dedicated owners, businesses, groups and individuals who work tirelessly to conserve Ballarat's significant heritage. The awards have grown since their inception and are held by a number of local councils and National Trust branches across Victoria.
What a wonderful response to this year’s awards! We have received nominations for a fantastic range of projects across the five categories and look forward to the shortlisting and judging process over the coming weeks.
2017 winners were announced following the official awards ceremony on Tuesday 16 May, including the newly created National Trust People’s Choice Award.
