If you plan on taking a holiday to Victoria Australia, one of the most popular tourist spots to visit outside of Melbourne is Ballarat. It does get a bit cooler than Melbourne, so take some warm clothes! One of the biggest festivals in Ballarat is their Winter Festival. Here they decorate laneways with colourful lights and have a pop up ice skating ring just off Sturt Street. One of the biggest events though is the Winter Wonderlights at Sovereign Hill. I’ll show more of this in the video guide to Ballarat. In this video I will show you some of the best things to do in Ballarat for a family, couple or even solo traveller. This is a list of Ballarat’s top tourist attractions 10. Ballarat Wildlife Park The park was opened in 1987 and covers some 37 acres of natural bushland. If you want to see some natural Australian animals, Ballarat Wildlife Park has plenty, from free roaming kangaroos and emus – where you can hand feed these cute Australian animals. Learn about koalas on one of the guided tours. Get a selfie with a wombat. Watch Tasmanian devils getting fed. See giant tortoises, crocodiles and alligators. And of course the meerkats! Check out the reptile enclose for snakes and lizards. A great place to take the whole family in Ballarat. 9. Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka The Eureka Flag is housed on the historic site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade and is surrounded by the scenic Eureka Stockade Memorial Gardens. 8. The Art Gallery of Ballarat. If you’re an art lover, this is the place to visit in Ballart. It holds both temporary and permanent art works. 7. Gold Museum of Ballarat. Gold is what made this town and this museum gives a fascinating insight to Ballarat’s gold rush. If you buy a ticket to Sovereign Hill, you will get the ticket included to the museum. 6. Lake Wendouree. This is a lovely spot to visit in Ballarat – enjoy a stroll around the lake, stop of one of the cafes or just enjoy the lovely gardens of the Botanic Gardens in Ballarat. Highlights to visit are the Prime Ministers Avenue, Adam Lindsay Gordon Cottage, the Australian Ex- Prisoner of War Memorial, the Ballarat Tramway Museum (try to take a tram ride by Lake Wendouree) and the 1956 Olympic Memorial. 5. Ballarat Ghost Tour. With Ballarat having the reputation of being one of Australia’s most haunted cities why night take a ghost tour of Ballarat at night. Eerie Ghost tours operates a weekend ghost tour of Ballarat. Meet under the clock tower at Ballarat Railway Station for a spooky 2 hour walking ghost tour. Visit haunted spots and listen to ghost stories by the guide. A fun way to see Ballarat. 4. Ballarat Heritage Tours. Take one of this walking tours of Ballarat, learn about this history of the city and its famous landmarks. Taken by an experienced guide who is extremely knowledgeable about Ballarat history. 3. Bloody Ballarat Tour. Take this tour of the dark side of Ballarat – true tales of murder and crime that you don’t learn in your history books. A fantastic tour you should do in Ballarat. The tours run at night. 2. Kryal Castle. One of the more popular things to do in Ballarat, especially for the family is Kryal Castle. Built as medieval castle just outside of town. Fun things to see the knights at the Tournament Arena. Here they joust on horseback and even sword fight. Watch the wizard make potions in his workshop. Visit the Torture Museum or get lost in the castle’s maze. There are places to eat and you can even stay overnight at one of their rooms. I will do another video on accommodation at Kryal Castle. Prices are listed on the website. 1/ Sovereign Hill Without a doubt the number one tourist attraction in Ballarat is Sovereign Hill. It has been voted Australia’s best ‘Major Tourist Attraction’ multiple times. A theme park set back as an 1850’s gold mining town. Learn to pan for gold in a replica river. Go underground on some the gold mining tours. Watch people preforming chores dressed in period costumes. See how they make candy the old way. Some other popular attractions at Sovereign Hill include the Red Coat Soldiers musket firing, horse and coach rides, bowling, candle making, getting and old photo taken and other street activities. A great place to take the whole family - a great educational experience for kids to learn about history. During Winter Sovereign Hill has its Winter Wonderlights Festival. This is a specular light show – that for me is a must do in Ballarat. The lights and snow effects make this truly a wonderful show to experience. During the festival they decorate Main Street shops with Christmas decorates, have a band playing Christmas Carols and you might even see Santa. One of the best Christmas in July events in Australia! A must for the family! Ticket prices are listed on the website. *All rates and conditions subject to change without notice.

I was inspired to take a road trip to South Australia on my Holidays. Naturally I took my planes and camera gear to get some footage of the journey. Along the way I visited the copper mining towns of the 1800's. It was at Burra SA where my Great, Great, Great Grandfather Joesph Harry arrived in 1860 to work the mines. Like all good road trips I had my share of emotional ups and downs, breakages and saw some amazing sights. I learned lots about the history of SA along the way. There was a very strong caravaning community out on the road and I made a few new friends on the way.

Après 3 mois de Fruit picking/packing et quelques jours de repos pour profiter du fabuleux feu d'artifice de cette nouvelle année et l'incroyable parc national des GRAMPIANS, il est grand temps pour nous de retourner sur les routes. Notre premier arrêt : BENDIGO, ville de l'Etat du Victoria, très charmante et célèbre pour son héritage architectural de l'ère victorienne. Elle fut considérée dans les année 1880 comme étant la plus riche du monde en raison de ses mines d'or ! De plus, la ville possède la troisième plus grande cathédrale australienne, que nous avons visité : "La cathédrale du Sacré-Cœur". Lors de notre passage la ville était aux couleurs de la star de cinéma Marilyn Monroe; pour l'occasion l'Art Gallery a obtenu l'emblématique sculpture de huit mètres de haut de Seward Johnson "toujours Marilyn" (Cette sculpture a été vu à Chicago et Palm Springs, États-Unis et fait ses débuts internationaux à Bendigo). De plus, une collaboration révolutionnaire avec Twentieth Century Fox a permis à l'Art Gallery d'organiser une exposition présentant les costumes, les vêtements et objets personnels tirées de collections privées à travers le monde ! Nous sommes ensuite parties à la découverte de BALLARAT, importante ville de l'Etat du Victoria où le quartier de Lydiard Street contient lui aussi quelques-uns des plus beaux exemples d'architecture victorienne de l'État. Nous y avons admiré les œuvres de l'Art Gallery qui est la plus ancienne et la plus grande galerie d'art régional en Australie, elle possèdes de superbes collections d'artistes locaux et internationaux !! Enjoy ! :)

MEDIA RELEASE Abbott Government Fails In Bid To Allow Cheap Foreign Labour In Offshore Oil and Gas Sector The Abbott Government’s ongoing efforts to undermine Australian jobs in the offshore oil and gas sector suffered a setback today when the Federal Court rejected its underhand means of deploying visas for foreign workers. The Full Court of the Federal Court declared that the Ministerial Determination ('Immi 14/077') introduced by Assistant Immigration Minister Michaelia Cash on July 17, 2014 “is not authorised … and is invalid”. “The Parliament’s intention was to confer upon the Minister a power to except or exempt particular activities or operations carried out under the Offshore Petroleum Act or Offshore Minerals Act, not to reverse the Parliament’s desire and intention to bring within the [Migration] Act non-citizens who are engaged in operations and activities under the Offshore Petroleum Act or the Offshore Minerals Act.” : see Judgment at . The Abbott Government has taken three significant steps to undermine Australian participation in offshore oil and gas projects. It has:* introduced a Bill to repeal the Migration Amendment (Offshore Resources Activity) Act 2013 (ORA ACT) that was passed by the Parliament in 2013 to address a flaw in Australia's migration law following a Federal Court judgment in the Allseas case that found certain groups of workers were not within the migration zone and did not require visas to work in Australia.* introduced a Regulation under the ORA Act that specified an inappropriate visa class as a work visa to conform with the ORA Act (the Maritime Crew Visa, which is a transit visa for visiting international seafarers, not a work visa) and;* when the Senate rightly disallowed the regulation specifying that visa, introduced a Ministerial Determination ('Immi 14/077') effectively making the ORA Act null and void in complete disregard to the wishes of the Parliament.Following the decision of Justice Buchanan of the Federal Court on 15 September 2014 which validated the use by the Government of Ministerial Determination 'Immi 14/077', the MUA and AMOU appealed the decision to the Full Court of the Federal Court. Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) National Secretary Paddy Crumlin said the decision today means that hundreds of jobs in the offshore oil and gas sector are in doubt and it’s not as if the Government hasn’t had time to prepare. "The Abbott Government has clearly outlined their agenda for employment in this important segment of our economy without regard to existing employment law or consequence,” Mr Crumlin said.

Visting the Day Dream mine just outside of Broken Hill in NSW. This is certainly an underground mine tour with a difference. Undergound mining in the late 1800's was a very tough way to make a living. The income was twice as much as a general farm hand but the average life expectancy was half as long at 35. This silver mine operated until the 1980's.

Bendigo is a major regional city in the State of Victoria, Australia, located very close to the geographical centre of the state and is approximately 150 kilometres (93 mi) north west of the state capital Melbourne. Bendigo is a vibrant contemporary regional centre, boasting beautiful streets created from one of the world's greatest gold rushes. Every visit will reveal new surprises and experiences. With the gusto of a gold-seeking miner, the people who live here are creating fascinating products, services and stories that add to the richness of the region's boom time past. It is an ever-changing feast to be explored. Nearby Heathcote has not missed the beat with artisans of food, wine and art flocking to be part of the action. Wide streets lined by opulent buildings are now interwoven with intriguing laneways and arcades that are home to a new breed of innovators who again delve deep to create a vibrant energy across the city. Modern day Bendigo has sublime food, wine and shopping experiences against a stunning heritage backdrop. Bendigo's action-packed events calendar is a mix of long-standing traditions, food and wine events, car rallies, sporting excellence and a great sense of fun. Since the gold boom times of 1871, the local Chinese community have come together to add Chinese dragons, regalia and startling crackers to Australia's longest continuous festival -- the Bendigo Easter Festival. A magnificent gold rush put Bendigo on the map more than 150 years ago. Tents came first and then with the wealth from the gold came elaborately designed homes, public buildings and monuments that are still used today. Once people came from around the world to prospect for gold and forge a new beginning. Today a similar exuberance has again put Bendigo on the map as an innovative city. Recent success stories include the expansion of Bendigo Bank, Jimmy Possum and Fernwood Fitness across Australia. An exciting energy has reshaped the towns and villages of Central Victoria. Every corner you turn in Bendigo reveals another living treasure; another vivid reminder of the city's glorious and heady past -- whether it is the outrageous opulence of a boomtown hotel, or the simple piety of a wooden church. The best 19th century cities combine grant scale and fine detail and there are few better than Bendigo. Many of Victoria's cities and towns owe their origins to the gold rushes of the 19th century and Bendigo is one of them. Gold was no temporary lure to this city located right in the centre of Victoria -- its attractions were more than just skin deep. In fact there was very little gold on the surface at all. Most of it was far underground in rich quartz reefs stretching out over 3,600 hectares around the city. The gold rush began in 1851 when the first diggers rushed to the Bendigo fields and continued until 1954 when the last winch on the city's last gold mine raised its last bucket of ore. In recent years mining for gold has re-commenced deep under Bendigo and continues today. During the city's first golden century, Bendigo became a melting pot with its own unique ethnic character -- the Irish at St Killians, the Cornish at Long Gully and the Germans at Ironbark Gully. These groups were just some of the many communities that helped to build Bendigo. German architects W C Vahland and Robert Getzschmann, along with Bendigo born William Beebe, were responsible for many of the city's finest buildings. One of the most enduring and distinctive contributions was made by the Chinese. Bendigo's Chinese heritage is well represented to this day, with the Historic Joss House and the Golden Dragon Museum and Classical Chinese Gardens. The influence of the gold rush can be felt in the very fabric of the city. Bendigo owes its broad and regular boulevards to the ambitious town plan prepared in 1854. Other streets follow the paths beaten by fossickers as they followed gullies and leads in search of gold. The city's ostentatious public buildings and gardens attest to the flamboyance of the gold rush era. So do the richly decorated privates homes. http://www.bendigotourism.com Unravel Travel TV http://www.unraveltravel.eu Unravel Travel TV on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/Unra...

The Maritime Union of Australia is demanding an investigation into Alcoa’s actions after the American-based miner forcibly replaced Australian seafarers with foreign workers. On January 13, at 1am five crew members aboard the Alcoa-owned vessel – the MV Portland – were woken by up to 30 security guards and intimidated into leaving the vessel following a 60-day dispute. The Portland had plied the trade between Western Australia and Victoria for more than 27 years. MUA Assistant National Secretary Ian Bray said that because it occurred in a Victorian port the State Government had a responsibility to hold and inquiry into the raid. “There are still many unanswered questions as to why this was allowed to occur,” Bray said at a rally outside of Liberal HQ on Exhibition Street, Melbourne. “We’ve seen no evidence that the replacement crew were competent, qualified or suitably trained. We don’t know what visa they were allowed to enter Australia on? “What we are sure of is that an operation as sophisticated as Alcoa undertook, with the hired security, must’ve been planned in advance and both the State and Federal Government would have to had some knowledge to allow the security guards and the foreign crew into the maritime security zone.” The MV Portland, which carried alumina between Western Australia and the smelter in Portland, Victoria has sailed to South-East Asia to be scrapped, however the route between WA and Victoria is still in operation. Alcoa have chartered foreign vessels, with a foreign crew to ply the domestic route in contravention to the Coastal Trading Act 2012. The Federal Government issued Alcoa with a Temporary Licence at the end of 2015 which enables the company to circumnavigate the laws. Bray said it was to be expected that profit-driven Alcoa would try and undermine Australian wages and conditions but it was untenable that the Australian Government would be complicit. “This whole headache could go away with the swipe of a pen. The Turnbull Government could revoke the licence immediately and the 40 jobs the MV Portland generated would be returned,” he said. Bray was joined by Victorian Branch Secretary Joe Italia who said the loss of jobs on the Portland was just the tip of the iceberg and if not opposed those job losses would permeate into other industries. Other speakers included Greens Senator Janet Rice, ACTU President Ged Kearney, CFMEU National Secretary Michael O’Connor and Victorian Trades Hall Council Luke Hilakari. However, it was when MV Portland delegate Dale Eaton jumped onto the back of the ute, took the microphone joined by his other crew members that got the 300-strong crowd’s attention. Dale spoke about the shoddy treatment he and the others had received courtesy of Alcoa. He also said that although the MV Portland may have sailed, the fight was far from over and that he, the crew and every other supporter would continue to fight for their jobs and for the right of Australians to work in their own country. Meanwhile, simultaneously in Sydney, the branch took their fight to the building of foreign Shipping Australia, the body that looks after the interests of international ship owners at the behest of local industry and workers. Approximately 100 members and supporters occupied the building until 2pm.

Natural Sound The giant aircraft manufacturer Boeing is to cut more than eight thousand (8,200) U-S jobs in the next two years. It is the second massive cut announced in the past three months. The company said it follows a decision to stop building two McDonnell Douglas jetliner models. Boeing said the latest job cuts are due to plant closures and the discontinuation of the MD-80 and MD-90 jetliner programmes. The world's largest commercial aircraft maker also said Friday it would close several plants and laboratories by the year 2-thousand. It has said that more than eight thousand jobs will be cut. Around 75 per cent of the jobs will be lost in California, where those aircraft are built. A Boeing spokesman said most of the job cuts will likely be from attrition and the company does not expect significant numbers of layoffs. The company is to reduce its factory space in an effort to cut its costs and to streamline production following a recent merger with McDonnell Douglas. Boeing acquired the aerospace and defence operations of Rockwell in December 1996 and merged with McDonnell Douglas last August. The company - which employs 238-thousand people worldwide - had announced 12-thousand job cuts in December. Boeing's stock went up on Friday morning on the New York Stock Exchange in response to the announcement.

This film spends a little time with Museum Manager, Neil Leckie, as he discusses the museum’s scope and collection. The Ballarat Ranger Military Museum was opened in the old Ranger Barracks in Ballarat in 1989. The museum houses a fascinating collection of memorabilia related to the various units which make up the long history of infantry in Ballarat, as well as other military memorabilia from the Ballarat District. Directed and Edited by Joel Checkley and Produced by Belinda Ensor for Museums Australia (Victoria), 2014 This film forms part of the Ballarat Underground story on the Culture Victoria website: http://www.cv.vic.gov.au/stories/a-diverse-state/ballarat-underground/

The commemoration of war expresses a celebration of service and a remembrance of the fallen. Yet it can also privilege certain forms of service over others. This forum will discuss the silences and absences in the commemoration of War, drawing on a major new exhibition by artist Brook Andrew at the Ian Potter Museum of Art. Professor Marcia Langton, Dr Vincent Alessi and Brook Andrew join Maxine McKew to examine the omission of Indigenous service from official forms of commemoration, and relate them to Indigenous issues today. It draws on a major new exhibition, Brook Andrew Sanctuary: Tombs of the outcasts at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, and is part of the University of Melbourne ANZAC Centenary Lectures.

isitors to Sovereign Hill will experience even more of the magic of Victorias Gold Rush with a new $3 million grant to transform its gold and outdoor museums and the opening today of a new state-of-the-art interactive exhibition, which brings to completion the Reinventing the Magic project. At Sovereign Hill, the Premier John Brumby today opened the new Trapped multimedia presentation capturing the 1882 Creswick Mine Disaster, marking the completion of the $3.8 million Reinventing the Magic project which also features an inclined tramway ride in which visitors can experience first-hand the risks miners took every day of their working lives. Transcript [footage of Premier John Brumby at opening the new 'trapped' multimedia presentation and announcing a further grant to Sovereign Hill] Brumby: This project that we are opening today is so important to Sovereign Hill, it's one that we've supported it's one that's going to mean more jobs. $3 million to promote gold rush history to the world 4 December 2009 John Brumby Premier of Victoria Brumby: Through our government we've provided that funding because it means jobs. And the biggest industry in the world today is tourism. You know, 100 years ago they used to be vagabonds, then they were travellers, now it's the worlds biggest industry. And we've got a great story to tell in our state - it's a great industry and it's one that is strongly supported by our government. And today I'm delighted to announce further funding that has been approved of $3 million, through our Regional Infrastructure Development Fund, to renovate and extend both the outdoor museum and the gold museum here at Sovereign Hill. And I think this was something the last time we were here at Sovereign Hill was raised with us and something that Tim, I and Jacinta have discussed. And today the funding is committed and that's going to be another great project. All in all, if my arithmetic is right, that will bring to I think $7.2 million the funding that has been provided by the state government to Sovereign Hill over the past 5 years. www.premier.vic.gov.au
