Spend an unforgettable holiday in the beautiful, history filled city of Ballarat, a leisurely one-hour drive from Melbourne.
You will be staying in the heart of Ballarat in your own beautifully appointed room within a piece of history at Bishops Palace, a Heritage listed Gothic mansion. For those interested in history, this is a unique opportunity to become immersed in the brilliant architecture of the 1800’s.
Bishops Palace is one of the most imposing houses in Ballarat.

The space
This privately-owned home offers peace and tranquillity, set amongst picturesque gardens which are heritage listed, you can enjoy strolling around, or sit and enjoy a good book or a glass of wine.
There is plenty to do in Ballarat. The pretty Lake Wendouree is a one-minute stroll, and we would recommend visiting Sovereign Hill and the Eureka Stockade attractions, the Arch of Victory, the Botanical Gardens, and dining at the many fabulous restaurants/cafes located very nearby.
The Palace would be ideal for both individual stays, Weddings or would be great for company retreats, as we have accommodation for up to 12 guests.
We are experienced hosts holding a super host rating.
