Ukrainians Go Back to Ballarat!

There once used to be a thriving Ukrainian community in Ballarat. To honour and commemorate this, descendants of those who lived there organised a ‘Back to Ballarat’ reunion event this weekend.

A commemorative plaque was provided by the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations which will be placed in the region.
