Ballan is a small town in the state of Victoria, located on the Werribee River, 78 kilometres northwest of Melbourne.


It is the main administrative centre for the Shire of Moorabool local government area. During the Victorian Gold Rush, it became an important staging point for coaches travelling to the Ballarat goldfields.


The area around Ballan was part of the tribal area of the Wautharong people, part of the Kulin nation. The area was rich in fauna, including kangaroo, kangaroo rats, bandicoots, dingos and two species of native cat. Many species had vanished by the end of the 19th century, with European settlement.


The first European settlers crossed Bass Strait landing near Geelong and worked their way up the Moorabool River with their sheep flocks. Robert von Steiglitz first settled the area in 1838; he named the area after Ballan in Ireland. Other early settler names included Covvie, Stead, Wallace and Egerton.


Gold was found in the area in 1851, which brought an influx of prospectors during the Victorian Gold Rush. The Ballan Hotel dates from the gold rush period in 1851. The town became an important staging point for coaches travelling to the Ballarat goldfields.

  • The most impressive part of dealing with Fiona was the accurate, timely and straight forward method in which she communicated what was going on during the leasing of my four vacant properties. I’m blown away with the results in a very testing market.
