Ballyrogan: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Mount Buangor State Park


Explore a variety of landscapes including eucalypt forest, creek flats, waterfalls and steep escarpments at Mount Buangor State Park. From the peak of Mount Buangor, the highest in the area, you can experience spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

There is a 15 kilometre network of walking tracks in the park; many extend into the adjoining Mount Cole State Forest. Middle Creek is a good spot for large groups to camp or for camping in caravans.

The section of the Bukkertillible and Sugarloaf walks between The Cave and 2 Mile Circuit is a semi remote and steep walk suitable for experienced bushwalkers only. Please be aware that in wet conditions this section of track can become quite slippery.

Lar-ne-jeering (Langi Ghiran) is from the Djab Wurrung language meaning 'home of the black cockatoo'.

Ararat Railway Museum


The Ararat Railway Museum is managed by the Ararat Railway Heritage Association, who formed in 1995 to preserve some of the history of the railways from the region.

The Museum contains two historically significant signal boxes. Signal Box 'A' was one of two signal boxes at the Ararat Station which were commissioned on 26 October 1891. The Box was located at the Melbourne end of the Ararat Yard (east end).

The other 'B' Box stood at the Stawell end of the Yard (west end). 'B' Box remained until 10 November 1984 when alterations in the Ararat Yard forced its closure and demolition. 'B' Box was originally built with 65 levers in February 1921, a further seven levers were added, bringing the total to its present number of 72. The levers are painted red for signals, blue for lock bars and black for points to operate the movement of trains at the Melbourne end of the Yard and were interlocked to prevent unsafe and conflicting train movements, thus ensuring the impossibility of trains colliding.

Ararat Signal Box 'A' was decommissioned May 1995. The Historic Buildings Council has determined Signal Box 'A' and signal posts Ararat Railway Complex are of special significance to the State of Victoria. They were included on the Historic Buildings Council Register on 14 day of September 1995.

New members to the Ararat Railway Heritage Association are welcomed.

Langi Morgala Museum


The Langi Morgala Museum holds large and varied social history collections in trust for the town of Ararat and district.

The large eclectic collection covers a wide variety of themes of local importance, and includes objects from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Some of the individual collections are comprehensive and have been gathered with intent to demonstrate the history of a movement or an organisation over time. Others are less complete, and some items are without provenance. The museum includes some collections and individual items of a wider than local significance.

The museum artifact, photographic and document collection is made up largely of donations by individuals within the Ararat district. The museum collection is mainly displayed under glass in cabinets with larger items on open display. Some domestic items are on open display in four themed "rooms".

Large pieces of machinery are displayed outside, along with the refurbished blacksmiths shop. The collection is strong in aspects of the nineteenth and early twentieth century history of the town and district. Some more contemporary items, such as those relating to local World Champion and Olympic Cyclist Shane Kelly OAM and other local community organisations are also in the collection.

The museum also houses the largest collection of Aboriginal artifacts in Victoria, (the Mooney and Best collections), and items provenanced to the Ararat goldfields as well as objects from the large squatters estates in the district, items relating to farming, commerce, war, social, domestic and community life. The surviving collection of an earlier Ararat Borough Museum set up around 1900 also form part of the collection.

A rare 1603 James I silver shilling is also exhibited in the Museums coin collection
