Local Area Information

Bacchus Marsh is a typically quaint Australian country town that sits halfway between Melbourne and Ballarat. 

A high number of residents choose to commute to either Ballarat or Melbourne for work. Along the Western Freeway, this is a forty-five minute drive or from Bacchus Marsh Station, it is a thirty-five minutes trip via a V/Line train service.

Wonderful old elm trees line the town's Avenue of Honour; a tribute to the Australian soldiers who served in World War I. Just across from the train station is Maddingley Park, a popular picnic spot with locals and tourists.

The Harvest Festival is held every March to celebrate the town's rich history of growing fresh produce. Festivalgoers have the opportunity to taste local fruits and veggies, tour the farms that grew them and even tread grapes. 

Families have the opportunity to send their children to one of four different primary schools within the township; one secondary school, Bacchus Marsh College; and one K-12 school, Bacchus Marsh Grammar School.
