Rustic Fountain

Landmarks and Buildings

The Rustic Fountain was built to commemorate the first water supply to Ballarat. This organic, volcanic stone structure is similar to the ones which were erected in the Carlton Gardens in Melbourne.

Ballarat outgrew Lake Wendouree’s ability to supply the township with water in 1910, and the fountain was then turned off. The fountain was restored in 2015.
