"Pretty well Crappy"

I lived in this street for 18 months it was reasonable at the start but the traffic becomes very noticeable and neighbors are very snobby for lower class scum, but that is what you come to expect from most of Ballarat!!! Its a pretty town just wrong area!

It is a great place to visit for a weekend or passing through for the night and occasionally you do meet a genuinly nice person there but once people realise hey your not a tourist and they dont know you, they dont want to, my flatmate and I first started frequenting a nice little cafe in Sturt Street, and for the first month it was jgood and the food was great then after that the food became horrid and barely edible and the coffee was so disgusting, and it wasnt just that place which we frequented, which raises the subject, "Why does Ballarat businesses only like tourists and not their locals"?

AdamS It's such a shame you think that of Ballarat Kasey27. I've been there a bunch of times, however I have not 'lived' there.

Thanks for the heads up!

AdamS I have no idea Kasey27, but next time in town, ill have to do a little more investigating about local attitudes. As I have said previously though, I love Ballarat!

PeteField Its just a matter of finding the cool under populated bars/cafes - thankfully some Melbourne people who know how to do things right have set up here so things should improve. Ive been up here for 12 months now and have noticed improvement already - I recommend Bar Saloon Bar on Humphrey St south - a cool little acoustic music review without the local bogans hanging about - enjoy : ). As for food, the restaurants up here are fail stock standard Ramsy Street fare - but this has also begun to improve - as I mentioned, its about steering away from the tourist crapola and chancing upon a cool indi place. Same as anywhere really...
