The home of 102,000 and the late Patrick the wombat, Ballarat is the hometown of our very own music editor, Ayden. Known for the 19th century goldrush, raspberry hard candy and Sovereign Hill, Ballarat also happens to have a thriving live music scene that spreads far beyond the boundaries of the city in influence. Here you can find Ayden’s favourite five from home.
