Why I am bullish about Ballarat

There has been plenty written about the strength of Australia’s regional property markets over the past two years in particular. However, some major regional centres were making property waves long before that because of their growing populations and significant new or upgraded infrastructure. A case in point in Ballarat, which is only just over one hour’s train journey on the new and improved line north of Melbourne.
