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.
An article was also published in The Courier Newspaper, titled “Even the frogs, croaked differently: Ballarat’s Ukrainians”. Read here.
Stay tuned for the event report.
