Ballarat has some absolutely stunning architecture for a rural town.

Here's some of Rockhampton, QLD. No where near as nice though.

Cool, I didnt know this. It looks very European, but still completely different. Is this exceptional or are there many villages and towns like this?

Beautiful architecture... so pleasing to the eye... wish all small towns could look like this ... its almost as if every building competes to add to the urban scene and make the town look and feel more "city-ish," which they do!

I would personally rank Bendigo and Ballarat as having the best architecture of Australia's country towns with Rockhampton a close second.

(A few shots ive taken over the years)
