During a recent caravan adventure through Victoria we called into Ararat for a look around while travelling from Maryborough to Halls Gap. Ararat sits at the junction of the Western and Pyrenees Highways - only about 92 kilometres from Ballarat. I understand this is a great place to base yourself to explore the Pyrenees wine growing region and the Grampians.

We parked the van alongside the magnificent Town Hall Building and Gallery but unfortunately this was fenced off for renovation work. A walk past the Soldiers Memorial Park was rewarded with a a beautiful flower display left over from the Anzac Day commemorations. Then we headed up Barkly Street to Waack's Bakery as the weather was freezing and we did not want to stay outside for too long.  

Next time we will stay for a few and endeavour to discover more of the history of Ararat and explore this lovely looking place in country Victoria.
