1861 Map

The Bean Barn has a copy of the 1861 map of Ballarat showing the sites of the gold diggings and key mines. Come in and ask us to show you where the names of our coffee blends come from. The Mopoke lead, Gum Tree Flat diggings and Black Hill mine are all marked on the map. 

You can see the original map at the Central Highlands Library.
