It is 55 miles (89 kilometers) from Colac and offers a wide range of things to do and see, including Kryal Castle, Ballarat Fine Art Gallery and Gold Museum. Eureka Centre, Enfield State Park and Ballarat Golf Club are just a sample of the other attractions that should be included on everyone's to-do list.
