Why Ballarat

Why Ballarat
Why Ballarat

Ballarat is the largest city in Western Victoria and the third largest and fastest growing city in Victoria. It is a city on the move.

As the major commercial centre in Western Victoria, and a stone's throw from metropolitan Melbourne, Ballarat is ideally positioned to support business and industry growth.

Ballarat provides everything that metropolitan areas can offer business, and more. Greenfield development opportunities, established commercial and industrial facilities, excellent transport connectivity, loyal and highly-skilled workforce, secured utilities including high speed NBN, and strategic planning to support future growth.

The City of Ballarat is continuing to invest in the future of our great city. As a result of increased population growth, several master and precinct planning projects are underway to ensure the city continues to provide the lifestyle and economy that attracts residents, businesses and industry.

Ballarat is also experiencing record State and Federal Government infrastructure investment, demonstrating confidence in the future of the city as the Capital of Western Victoria.

Already home to internationally recognised organisations, including Mars Wrigley Confectionery, McCain Foods, IBM, PETStock, Alstom, Bombardier, and MAXITrans, Ballarat is a prime location and viable option to support the future of your business.

The City of Ballarat works closely with the Victorian Government and industry partners to attract, support and grow business in Ballarat. Through our Investment Facilitation program, businesses who are considering Ballarat are supported through the entire process to ensure the best outcomes.
