If you find yourself with an empty belly in Ballarat, then stop by at one of these seven restaurants. Whether you have a craving for Japanese, Thai, Spanish, Italian, café-style cuisine or a meal with a view, then Ballarat has something for you. Only an hour and a half from Melbourne’s CBD, these restaurants are worth the drive.
Overlooking Lake Wendouree, Ballarat’s Yacht Club was established in 1877 and now includes a club café which is open for breakfast and lunch.

This summer, take advantage of the stunning views from the deck and share a casual meal with friends.
