Learmonth  Victoria

    •   Show me: a map of Learmonth

Set on a large lake of the same name 15km north-west of Ballarat, the picturesque town of Learmonth and the surrounding district were some of the first inland Victorian areas settled by Europeans.

Nestled in a hollow on an extensive plain which is a comfortable hour and a half drive from Melbourne, Learmonth is partly surrounded by a chain of hills.

The scenic lake is the headquarters of YHA Fun Sailing, which offers both learn-to-sail and regular sailing programs tailored to the needs of the weekend sailor.

The historic golden city of Ballarat, of course, is just down the Sunraysia Highway. Four kilometres out on the approach to the city you will arrive at the Ballarat Aviation Museum.

Beyond lies all the history and heritage of Ballarat which not only produced huge amounts of gold but was the scene of Australia’s first civil uprising at the Eureka Stockade.

A prominent Learmonth landmark, an obelisk, is one of only 53 Victorian memorials dedicated to Australians who lost their lives in South Africa's Boer War. A total of 588 Australians were killed or died from disease in that war fought from 1899 to 1902, while Lieutenant Harry (The Breaker) Morant and Peter Handcock were shot by a British firing squad after a highly controversial court martial.
