Celebrating 150 years of Sebastopol
Looking back at the history of Sebastopol with the Ballarat Archive Centre
|Sebastopol was a long, thin, little township, strung out along the gold mines between Buninyong in the south and Ballarat, the bustling town just over Rubicon Street, in the north. Shops and houses shared the township with mines and mullock heaps.
On 1 October 1864, the Borough of Sebastopol separated from Buninyong Shire. To mark this milestone, we look back at the history of the town.
