Welcome to the Buninyong & District Historical Society website

Buninyong Town Hall and former Court House, erected 1886 Buninyong has an important place in Australian history as the major inland community of pre-goldrush Victoria, and the base from which the rich deposits of the Ballarat goldfields were discovered.

Many significant early buildings and records have been preserved or restored and several excellent publications help to tell its story. We hope you will enjoy a glimpse into the early life of the township through these pages.
