celebrations & special events.

Located 75 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, Mercure Ballarat Hotel and Convention Centre is home to regional Victoria’s leading venue for business and leisure guests, corporate and private events.

Situated opposite the multi-award winning tourist attraction Sovereign Hill, our upscale hotel and events venue is close to the historic goldfields of Ballarat.

Extensively renovated in 2015, Mercure Ballarat is surrounded by three hectares of beautifully manicured and well maintained gardens, complemented by an ornamental lake for a serene retreat atmosphere.

Featuring over 80 well-appointed rooms for guests to stay, Mercure Ballarat Hotel is perfect for weekend and leisure getaways, corporate stays or extended business events with company associates. All rooms are serviced daily to ensure the high level amenity of the property and incorporate an abundance of services for guests to enjoy during their stay.

Over the years, Mercure Ballarat has become the number one destination for organisers to host their business meetings and celebrations. Our conference centre is home to a range of function rooms which can handle all your business needs.

We provide business operators with total conference catering packages or an individually tailored event to suit individual requirements. We understand the importance of everything running smoothly and, to ensure no technical hitches, we provide an audio-visual technician on-call during your important event.
