Ballarat is a city located in the Australian province of Victoria. European sheep farmers settled there in 1838, and the population boomed in response to gold deposits discovered there in 1851.1 Several despatches, including this one, mention the Gold Fields at Ballarat, as well as the so-called “Ballarat riots”.
