Less hassles means more fun! To keep everyone smiling throughout the weekend you can park your car at Victoria Park (access via Gillies Street) and the FREE shuttle bus will whisk you to the Festival site (and the kids will love the ride!). Shuttles will run on a continuous loop from Victoria Park to the Ballarat Botanical Gardens from 9:30am to 5:30pm daily.
Visitors can take advantage of our FREE shuttle service from the Ballarat Train Station to the Festival. Buses will meet each train service arriving from and departing to Melbourne, between 10am to 5pm during the weekend.
The Ballarat Begonia Festival will provide free Vintage tram rides all weekend for your convenience and enjoyment. Travel the 1.3kms of the original track beside the Botanical Gardens on the west side of Lake Wendouree. Why not visit the Ballarat Tramways Museum as well?
