The Department/Area

The Museums Division cares for, researches and interprets the Association’s museum collection of some 150,000 items. It presents a variety of public programs — exhibitions, education programs, guided tours, interpretive activities and other events associated with the heritage of the Ballarat region.

The Narmbool department operates the environmental discovery camp facilities and programs for school students and supports a busy function centre, as well as coordinating activities with the Farm Manager and Patrons. Today’s homestead dates from 1889 and has been given a D-Classification by the National Trust. Narmbool is a 2,000-hectare property and consists of the Garden Room Restaurant, which was built by Sovereign Hill as an elegant venue for special occasions, as well as Narmbool Lodge, Manna’s Outstation and Tea Tree Gully Bush Camp.
